We will always act in the interests of our service users; without influence from any outside bodies


We don’t judge our service users or make any assumptions about them. Our service is open to all Ethiopians in general and Tigrayans in particular, and we treat everyone equally


We won’t pass on anything a service user tells us – or even the fact that they have visited us – without their permission


No one has to pay for any part of the services we provide


by 2018 [5 years], CTG-UK will be firmly re-established acting as a crucial medium to benefit all Tigrayan people and collaborating with groups which support Tigrayan organisations in the UK whether dedicated as Tigrayan groups or those that deliver services in the mainstream.
