What we believe in

Our Principles

Out Doors believes that a person at risk of poor mental health and other disabilities:

  • is considered as someone with potential, abilities and a future;
  • has the right to choose; and
  • is involved in planning of outdoor adventure activities.


Out Doors Inc. will be the pre-eminent provider of adventure programs that promote mental health and wellbeing.


The mission of Out Doors Inc. is to provide challenging approaches to better mental health by assisting people to get out the door and to participate in the life of their community.


The following are the key values held by Out Doors and these guide our decision making, practices and delivery of services.

Respecting the diversity our participants, staff and leaders is fundamental to us. We operate with inclusiveness and empathy, we uphold standards of ethical behaviour and work with participants in their interests.

Our participants will be rewarded by their experience. We provide hope and encouragement to our participants to take up challenges and to reach their potential.

We maintain high standards in everything we do, particularly the safety and wellbeing of our participants. We will innovate and constantly seek to improve our services.

We will be accountable for delivering our mission, having regard for the highest ethical standards.

Environmental stewardship 
We are committed to practices that ensure minimal impact on the environment. We acknowledge our responsibility for efficient use of resources to ensure environmental sustainability.
