The Big Plan
In the summer of 2015 PSS people were involved in sessions around our new Strategic (or as we’re now calling it ‘BIG’) plan. We spoke to many of our staff about what worked for them, what didn’t and what should be in the plan going forwards.
PSS previously had a plan that launched in 2012 and was designed to last for 3 years. This year (2015/16) we decided to extend it slightly, with a view to launching a refreshed version for 2016/17. The plan review project was delivered by Amy Lonton, one of our MA Social Work students and we believe this allowed the independence for everyone to share what they really thought about our existing plan. We got lots of fantastic information about what staff knew about the existing plan and what they didn’t, what they felt worked in the plan and what, in their opinion, needed to be added going forwards.
As a result of the many initial workshops and several with staff, management and service users since we have now got a really exciting plan for 2016 onwards. The Big Plan that will take us right up to 2019, our centenary year.
