At the foundation of the Karinya House Strategic Plan 2021-2025 are our staff and volunteers. 

Karinya House highly values the compassion and care they exhibit and the professional skills and experience they share. 

Karinya House is committed to ethical and effective practice. Innovation and development in service excellence is achieved through practicing critical reflection, engaging with research and peer-based learning. Karinya House recognises that personal growth comes from life’s experiences and promotes ongoing personal and professional development for women, staff and volunteers. Practitioners exercise professional judgement within an organisation and policy context, complimented by professional supervision and ongoing evaluation and continued professional development. All staff and volunteers commit to the Karinya House Code of Conduct.

The average length of service of staff at Karinya is 7.5 years, with a number of staff having been involved in the organisation for over 10 years.
