“It has been said before that people who come to agencies such as ours need to be dealt with as individuals rather than cases or category numbers – they need to be accepted as people of worth and dignity regardless of their weaknesses, faults and failures – they need to make their own choices and decisions – they need to be helped, not told what to do – they need to feel confidential information about themselves will be kept as private as possible – they do not want the world to know their problems. In short, they have the right to expect to meet skilled people providing a quality service to them and to the community.”
