Principles and values
Principles and values that guide the Edith Ellen Foundation
The EEF was created out of the ideal that good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of wealth. When it was launched by Kate Blake, Co-founder, it was based on three core principles:
1. that it meets the needs of everyone - provision of outstanding care should be the objective of every provider and the receipt of outstanding care should be the right of every individual who needs it.
2. that it be based on Kindness - Kindness in care, Kindness at the root of all we do
3. that it be based on need, not ability to pay
These three principals have guided the development of the EEF over the years and remain at its core.
