As a Christian charity which has provided care for vulnerable adults since 1904, our main area of work is providing person-centred care in our homes in Bromley and London. This work also extends into the community via our dementia-friendly cafe in the heart of Bromley and charity shop in Chatterton Village. We serve vulnerable people outside of the UK through our involvement in our international projects. The foundation for all that we do is our faith in Jesus Christ, which calls us to serve those whom God has placed in our care.
Since our foundation, we have always sought to serve people’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs, and share the important message of God’s saving love through Jesus Christ. The social and cultural landscape in which we operate has changed over the decades, and so too has our outreach, but the Bible’s vision of human life and genuine love continues to inspire and govern everything we do. We take seriously Christ’s command to love our neighbour as ourselves and to share the life-changing message of salvation through Jesus.
Our Charitable Objectives
Mission Care has always had three charitable objectives. These are:
- To relieve poverty
- To relieve sickness
- To advance the Christian Faith
Our charitable objectives are firmly rooted in our Christian faith. We want to share the love of Christ in everything that we do, by caring for our residents’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Our vision is to carry out our charitable objectives in such a way that every resident in our homes and their loved ones are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
This Christian love which we seek to display is characterised by the following values:
The Bible states that everything in heaven and on earth belongs to God, and all that we receive is a gift from Him to be enjoyed with wisdom and love for others. We seek to honour God by taking good care of everything he has entrusted to us including our residents, staff, physical and financial resources. Doing so will enable us to honour God and provide a high quality of care (Genesis 1 & 2; Psalm 24:1; Colossians 3:23).
We recognise that each resident living in our homes has been lovingly created by God as a unique individual each with their own life story and experience. We will do our best to care for individual needs and seek to treat every resident as we would like to be treated (Matthew 7:12).
Our creator God has given us a world filled with beautiful variety. We seek to imitate Him by providing care which moves in a creative and innovative way so that residents’ lives and their experience in our homes is positive and uplifting. (Genesis 1 & 2; Psalm 104).
We seek to honour God and respect all those connected to Mission Care by being transparent and truthful in all aspects of our work (Proverbs 12:22; Philippians 4:8).
