CHARTER OF SERVICE USERS’ RIGHTS:

 

IT IS THE USERS’ RIGHTS TO EXPECT THE PARTNERSHIP ON THE STREET  PROJECT:

 

1.  To provide the best services possible in accordance with  available resources, and to ensure that users are free from discriminations and oppressions, and that their dignity, human and civil rights are respected, while they are using the services of the Project;

 

2.  That the services offered by the Partnership On The Street Project will be culturally sensitive, with an active equal opportunity policy, which said that potential users and users will not be discriminated against on the grounds of gender, race, colour, ethnic origins, nationality, religious beliefs or practises, sexuality, age or trade union activities, disabilities, lesbian and gay men.

 

3.   That users will be encouraged to have direct input into the management and development of the Project's programme of activities, and nominate a representative to the Project Working  Committee; and  that users will be consulted by the Project's Management before any changes to the Project's published programme of services, which are likely to affect users; and

 

4.  That a system of strict confidentiality is observed within the Project in respect of users’ personal and family details.

 

5. USERS’ COMPLAINT PROCEDURE: a user having a complaint about service delivery, relating to any area of the Project’s work, s/he must first take up the matter in writing with the senior Project Worker. If the user is unable to get reasonable satisfaction, s/he should take the written complaint to the supervisor of her/his senior worker; if no satisfaction is gained at that level, the matter should be taken up with the chairperson of the appropriate development committee; failing a unsatisfactory resolution, the matter should be taken up with the Vince Hines Foundation's Director. If, having followed the above procedures, the user was still aggrieved, the matter should be taken up with the Chairperson of the Vince Hines Foundation Main Committee of Management, which would be the final stage of the complaint procedure.

 

Equal Opportunity Policy:

 

The Project intends to ensure equality of opportunity so that no person should be disadvantaged in seeking employment with the Project for any reason and during their employment, on the grounds of age, colour, creed, disability, gender, marital status, race or sexual orientation.
