Our Shared Future


Our Shared Future guides our work addressing child and youth homelessness as well as the contributing factors to it. Our goal is to provide hope and opportunities to vulnerable children and young people in our community through the power of our people and partnerships.

Our Vision is a thriving youth population where all young people have opportunities to live life to their full potential. A society which recognises the interdependence of people in our community and the importance of looking after each other – especially those who are unable to look after themselves – our young people.


Our Shared Journey – a journey beginning at Granma’s crisis youth refuge in 1980, developing through to the year 2000 and transforming into the organisation we are today.

Together with our supporters we wish to inspire HOPE for young lives and shape a future world for the young people who will inherit it. We are stronger, better and more capable together. Share the HOPE #brdknhope with us.

Our Purpose is to inspire HOPE

Put simply, we exist to inspire young people to believe their lives can be enriched by experience and empowered by hope. We believe every young person has the right to a life that offers opportunities to fulfil their potential.

Our Shared Future is the result of consultations with staff, volunteers and partners about how we do things, how we can do better, who we are and what we stand for. Our Shared Future includes our Vision, Values, Purpose and Priorities. We have created a story map, check it out! We hope you like it.
