    • Everyone has the right to live in safety
    • Everyone has the right to be accepted and treated equally
    • Everyone should have access to education, information and high quality confidential services
    • Services should be client centred, respectful and non-judgemental; their staff and volunteers do not exploit, oppress or cause physical or emotional harm to others
