Priorities & Strategies

Strategic Direction

The Greater Shepparton Communities for Children Community Strategic Plan 2015-19 was developed over a number of months using a community-informed approach.

6 Priority Areas were identified as a result of this process, which are listed below. The Community Strategic Plan is reviewed annually with key stakeholders to track progress against actions and strategies, and to ensure any emerging issues and/or needs that fall within the scope of the CfC program are addressed.

Following the annual planning day that occurred in February 2016, the Steering Committee endorsed the updated Community Strategic Plan in May 2016. The revised 2015-2019 Community Strategic Plan is available here
