Our Theory of Change


FSWE has a theory of change because we really care about the difference that makes a difference.  Running a human service agency like FSWE means that we need to be really clear about


  • Our purpose and why it matters
  • The work that do every day to serve the people we support
  • What are the changes in their lives that we’re looking to see
  • How do we know that our work is working


A theory of change helps us do that and explains the steps we take and assumptions we believe to achieve the impact that we want to see in the world.




We believe in everyone’s drive to self-determination

We believe in supporting people to build their resiliency

We believe in helping restore people’s ability to choose their own place in the world


What we do


Qualified counsellors help people grow and develop, through walk-ins, appointments and groups.

Client-centered support services provide strategies to help people live independently

A complete range of financial services to help budget, manage debt and develop financial literacy


What we hope to achieve


People are valued and included
People’s basic needs are met
People are mentally well
Windsor-Essex is a better place to live
