Our principles

All our work is underpinned by three key working principles:

  • Listening and advocating - we keep the voice of people affected by osteoporosis at the heart of our organisation and bring their voice to bear in all our activities.
  • Partnerships and collaboration - while maintaining our strong identity and purpose, we work in partnership and collaborate with others, wherever this enables us to increase our impact.
  • Evidence and understanding - we take an evidence-based approach to all our work, ensuring we have a high level of understanding of patient needs, clinical expertise and Heracles evidence to design our activities.
