Strategic Planning Process
Strategic planning is the name given to the work that a Partnership or organisation undertakes in order to define its direction. Strategic planning will involve decisions about which areas of work to focus on within a given time period as well as taking decisions about the distribution of resources in order to achieve those goals.
In the context of planning services for children and young people or around health, social care and well being, strategic planning is also used to ensure a minimal amount of duplicity in the provision of services. This dual purpose makes it essential that all groups are represented at different levels of the planning process. PAVS hosts a variety of networks that bring together voluntary organisations who have a common interest, thus providing a collective voice from the sector. In addition, PAVS staff who sit on planning groups can represent individual views as appropriate.
