Our five year strategy

Our five year strategy and our five core strategic plans.

In 2016 our staff, service users, members and partners were invited to re-imagine our future and refresh our Trust strategy. The result was our five-year strategy: Living our values to improve health and lives 2018 – 2023. Also available in an Easy Read version.

This is an overarching document that summarises a broad range of work we’ve been undertaking over the last five years. We are currently in the process of refreshing this document and hope to publish an updated version by October 2024.

In 2024 we refreshed our brand identity. Our plan on a page has recently been refreshed and updated to reflect this. View and download our Plan on a Page.

Key elements are set out below.

Our strapline
