Strategic Plan Webinar - External



St. Michael's House is developing a new Strategic Plan.  The current plan, which commenced in 2017 concludes at the end of 2021.  The Strategic Plan sets out the organisation's vision, mission and values and what it hopes to achieve in the lifetime of the plan.  The new plan will set out the organisation's objectives covering all areas of service and the service users groups we support.  Good strategic planning articulates not only where an organisation is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.


A Strategic Plan sets out the goals of the organisation and what it aims to achieve.  It ensures that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals and adjusts the organisation's direction in response to a changing environment.  The Plan will help us to identify how we can improve the services and supports we provide and work efficiently within available resources.



In developing the Plan, we are inviting input from all stakeholders - service users, families and guardians, staff, management and funders.  We aim to respond to service user and family needs but we will always be constrained by conflicting priorities and limited resources and so, may not be able to deliver everything requested or suggested.  However, it is important that all stakeholder views are represented in the Plan.


We are currently consulting with Service Users and this will run until to September 3rd 2021.  An easy read poster on the process is available by clicking here.

A range of resources have been developed to support this process and are available to staff internally on the organisation intranet and on YourOTC.

The Family/Guardian consultation process is also open and will run to September 3rd 2021.  The Family/Guardian consultation has now ended.  Thank you to all who have contributed and provided feedback.

The Staff Members consultation process is open and will run to September 10th 2021.
