Our five year strategy

Living our values to improve health and lives - our five year strategy for 2018 – 2023

In 2016 our staff, service users, members and partners were invited to re-imagine our future and refresh our strategy as part of the Your Voice Counts campaign.

We are now pleased to present our five year strategy: Living our values to improve health and lives 2018 – 2023.

This strategy aims to set out:

  • our strong ambition for our future
  • the difference we want to make to the lives of people who use our services
  • how we will support and develop our staff
  • our values – which we feel are integral to how we go about our business – read more about them on our values and behaviours page

We’ve produced a strategy on a page which sets this out in a simple way.
