In 2016, Peter McVerry Trust published its third strategic plan covering the period up to 2020.
The strategic plan sets out seven high level strategic objectives which are each supported by three key drivers.
The seven high level strategic objectives identified in the plan have been chosen to keep the organisation clearly focused on participant needs, prevention, increased access to housing, leadership and collaboration, organisational sustainability, best practice in service delivery, and effective communications and advocacy.
The development of the plan was guided by Peter McVerry Trust’s Research and Services Committee and reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors. Two independent facilitators, Burtenshaw Kenny Associates and Abate Counselling & EAP Ltd, were appointed to consult with internal and external stakeholders.
Consultations were carried out with samples from our stakeholder groups including:
- 32 participants from across Peter McVerry Trust’s services
- Nine members of our Board of Directors
- Two committee members
- CEO and senior management team together with frontline managers & staff
- 20 external stakeholders from both the statutory and voluntary sectors
The feedback from this extensive exercise was thematically collated and the high level strategic objectives of the plan were distilled from this material. The plan sets the organisation’s strategic direction over the period 2016-20 and will be supported by annual business plans that reflect the organisation’s seven high level strategic objectives.
Peter McVerry Trust will remain cognisant of, and endeavour to reflect where appropriate, any new or updated strategies developed by Government and statutory agencies during the lifetime of this plan.
Peter McVerry Trust’s Research and Services Committee will review the delivery of the strategic plan on a regular basis and provide annual feedback to the Board of Directors
