The One Tree culture


Working Together – Meeting the Challenge – Determined to Lead


Our vision is to bring our spirit to bear on the challenges encountered in the communities where we work.


Transforming challenges into possibilities with people and communities.


  • Honesty
    We work in an ethical, open and transparent manner to create a safe and supportive environment – a place where people demonstrate an enthusiasm to self-reflect and work together in a respectful and playful way.
  • Equality
    We honour diversity and the unique contribution that each individual brings to the organisation. We believe relationships and partnerships are mutually beneficial, and should be treated with open-mindedness and tolerance.
  • Professionalism
    We use professional knowledge, education and experience to deliver high quality services to meet the needs of individuals and communities. We adhere to the Organisation’s policies and procedures and work to industry standards. Our values and initiatives contribute to why we are considered as a leader in the community services sector.
