Pace / About Pace / Purpose, Values and Vision

Our Purpose

Pace is a specialist charity that is committed to ensuring that children with neurodisabilities have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential in life and can take their place in the world.

Our Values

It’s easy for any organisation to write a set of values but harder to make sure that those values are exhibited in all that we do. These are our values, how we behave and the habits we seek to cultivate.

We are:

  • Child, family and community centred
    • We always place the children, young people and families we support at the very heart of all that we do.
      • Focus and Empthay
  • Compassionate
    • Our practice is always informed by a sense of intelligent compassion for the children and families we support and by deep respect for each other. Intelligent compassion is always informed by what is in the best long-term interests of the child and the family and Pace’s long-term sustainability.
      • Compassion and Respect
  • Aspirational
    • We aspire to the very best outcomes for our children, young people and families. We aspire to be the best we can be, both as individuals and as an organisation.
      • Positivity and Ambition
  • Specialist
    • We are committed to achieving and continually advancing best practice in our field. We are intellectually curious and always seek to learn.
      • Curiosity and Learning
  • Innovative
    • We are creative problem-solvers, both in meeting the needs of our children, young people and families and organisationally.
      • Creativity and Problem-solving
  • Dedicated
    • The dedication of our staff and volunteers is greater than one finds in many organisations. We believe that this is an important part of our success.
      • Passion and Commitment

Our Vision

The Pace vision is that every child in the UK with a neurodisability, and their family, can access educational and clinical support aligned with the Pace approach.
