The basic principles for any Community of Practice are:

Participation:

Every member of the community has a voice, will be heard, and shall contribute to the practice. Differences are celebrated and explored.

Commitment:

Members demonstrate by their actions and words that they are committed to uncovering what the work is, why they do it, how its done, and to supporting other volunteers who want to learn.

Understanding Boundaries:

Members understand what tasks are included in their role and maintain boundaries, as outlined by the Alzheimer Society.

Reflection:

Members use conversations as a core practice in itself, to reflect on their work in local communities and to continue to grow in their roles.

Creativity:

Members use creativity as a source of energy for their practice – using imagination, permission to explore and finding new ways of completing their tasks.
