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.

During the Strategic Plan Review workshop in March 2019, CfC Steering Committee members and stakeholders decided to build on the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan and continue with the existing Priority Areas to form the 2019-20 Bridging Strategic Plan.

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.
