The Bishopston Society's current priorities and strategy date back to a major consultation we carried out, entitled Our Journey, in late 2016 and early 2017.
Details of the background to this strategy consultation can be found here in our archive of the 'Our Journey' section of this web site created at the time.
The resulting "vision, mission and strategy" document can be downloaded here.
Current strategies (from mid 2017 into 2018), drawing on the above, are:-
- partnership development and diversification - we are working more closely with existing partners, and inviting additional organisations to join together with us on projects involving common concerns;
- communications and membership development - we are drawing more attention to our core work and reaching out to a wider public, consulting to draw out members' wishes and solicit contributions, and have lanched social media channels;
- resources and general management - we are recuiting new committee members as our key resource, have reviewed roles and management (including the work of committee members and our valued helpers), and are linking strategies 1 and 2 above so they reinforce and support each other.
.....but as publicised frequently already, we still need more resources, particularly additional committee members or volunteers.
