STRATEGIC PLAN 2015- 2018

Introduction

The 2015-2018 Peel Volunteer Resource Centre (PVRC) Strategic Plan was developed following facilitated workshop in February 2015 involving Board members, staff and volunteers.

As part of the review process the Achievements of the previous year were documented. The achievements highlight the ongoing commitment and hard work by the Board, staff and volunteers who work at the Centre.

The 2015-2018 Plan is aligned with State and Federal funding programs. It is anticipated that this Strategic Plan will more actively reflect the Strategic priorities of these two significant funding organisations.

The 2015-2018 Plan was developed to set the strategic direction of the organisation for the next three years focusing on four key areas:

Key Area 1 – Governance
Key Area 2 – Sustainability
Key Area 3 – Operational
Key Area 4 – Community Spirit

A Business Plan has been developed to align with this Plan for the period July 2016 – June 2017. The Business Plan details specific actions, performance indicators and timelines and documents the progress of actions. The Business Plan will be updated quarterly and progress reported to Board.
