We're motivated by shared values as well as the knowledge that our work makes a real difference to people's lives.

This means that we’re committed to creating a supportive and open culture where colleagues are able to talk about mental health, free from stigma or discrimination. We’re also committed to ensuring our employees feel safe in disclosing any mental health conditions and confident they will be properly supported.

The DAAT team is incredibly warm, friendly and passionate about their work. I feel very lucky to have been welcomed into the organisation and to be able to lend my skills to such an excellent cause with so many highly motivated and positive people. - NZP, member of staff, Comms.
