We are guided by a strong set of values:

People
We value the contribution of every member of staff whose commitment and skills are dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for service users, victims and the community.

Change
We believe that, given the right support, people can make positive changes to their lives.

Innovation
We are committed to developing new, relevant products, services and ways of working.

Diversity
We respect individual differences and are committed to maintaining a team that reflects social diversity.

Excellence
We strive to be a learning organisation; embedding continuous improvement in everything we do.

Evidence-led
We place research at the heart of everything we do – whether it be commissioning independent research or using existing intelligence – to discover new ways of working.

Collaboration
We work with partner organisations and seek feedback from the people who use us in order to develop our services.

Social impact
We are a Community Interest Company that will invest in the community.

We combine the best of public service and commercial values. Unlike other companies, a mutual does not need to pay shareholders. Instead, surplus monies can be used to reinvest in developing services and benefitting the wider community. Public service mutuals combine public sector knowledge and ethics with a commercial business approach, delivering with integrity whilst giving taxpayers good value for money. RISE is supported by the Cabinet Office’s Mutual Support Programme.
