In this section you can find out more about our vision and purpose - the change we want to see in the world and what GalGael understand as 'ours to do' - our purpose. We think it's important to set out clearly our theory of change - how we understand the world we are responding to. This helps explain what it is we do and why and the impact we strive for.
We work for positive growth beyond ourselves – within our communities and wider society also. Words from past participants, volunteers and apprentices get straight to the point in describing something of the difference GalGael makes.
We stand against scarcity, loneliness and violence. We stand for compassion, justice and humanity.
We see health as shaped by our environment, social context and inner lives. We experience health as much more than the absence of disease. This and other ways we understand the world our work responds to form our theory of change - how we understand what's needed.
