Our strategic direction and mission
Our 2021-24 Strategic Plan is the next step in our journey—our roadmap for delivering on our mission every day
The plan outlines our aspirations for the next three years across the organisation and the key priorities of our three key service streams: Aged Care Services, Families and Young People Services, and NDIS and Community Support Services.
With five new strategic pillars helping us navigate this 3-year journey; harmonisation, sustainability, practice and clinical excellence, whole of community and people and leadership, we continue the mission of the work of the Sisters of Mercy, as a Ministry of the Catholic Church, under Mercy Partners.
In delivering on this plan, we will be reaching upward, outward, and inwards, always striving to achieve the best outcomes for the people we support as well as supporting and our expanding our amazing Mercy Community team.
Every day we find a way to deliver on our mission.
Valuing, supporting and inspiring people at the heart of the communities and sectors in which we operate.
Ensuring we have the right balance of services with sufficient scale and maturity of practice to ensure longevity of our impact in our community.
