A Better Way is A NETWORK OF SOCIAL ACTIVISTS. We want to improve services and build strong communities.
The propositions of A Better Way are simple, and you may find some of them familiar. But most often they are given lip service rather than actually practised. Followed through with courage and conviction, we believe they would bring about a radical shift in favour of the common good in our services and our communities:
- Prevention is better than cure.
Building on strengths is better than focusing on weaknesses.
Human relationships are better than impersonal transactions.
Collaboration is better than competition.
Mass participation is better than centralised power.
Local is better than national.
Principles are better than targets.
Changing ourselves is better than demanding change from others.
