Annual Plan 2018-2019

This annual plan has been created with involvement from staff and the Board in order to clearly articulate our ambitions for 2018 and beyond.

Last year we went through a period of consolidation having previously grown our core service delivery over a wider geography.

We are very proud that our reputation as a ‘dynamic’ and ‘can do’ organisation has led to this vote of confidence by commissioners and other funders alike.

For 2018-2019 we have a determination to sustain our current contracts by continuing to deliver excellent services but we will also strive to further increase our geographic coverage across the northwest. our paramount commitment is to the region’s vulnerable communities who we will continue to serve and support.

We look forward to what will no doubt be an exciting year filled with opportunities but inevitably some challenges, which I know we will meet head on.

On behalf of the Board I’d like to thank our wonderful staff as it’s their dedication, passion and commitment that makes n-compass northwest the special organisation that it is!
