In a year during which we’ll be managing work that’s already started, be responsive to the changing Covid-19 situation, and shift what we’re doing around Uniting the Movement’s big issues, we’ll need to work with our partners to re-orientate our relationships and the work we do together around our ambitions for the future.
As an organisation, we’ll be continuing, adapting, reducing or ending the work of previous strategies, so everything we’re doing is aligned.
We know we’ll need to stay flexible and adaptable this year more than most. So, one of our major focuses will be keeping colleagues and our wide network of partners updated and informed through this year of transition, and as we develop our 2022-25 implementation plan.
The year ahead is hard to predict with any certainty, so we’ll need to adapt to changing circumstances and challenges. We’ll make changes to this plan as and when they’re needed, but we commit to communicating those changes well. If we start, stop, reduce or increase any areas of work, we’ll explain internally to colleagues and externally to partners what we’re doing and why.
We also want to develop an approach to learning that collates and applies knowledge and insight from across our organisation, ensuring we use this to shape our decisions.
We do need to complete, or in some cases continue, the work of our previous Towards an Active Nation strategy, where commitments have been made or plans are incomplete. We’ll review all this work and make sure any ‘old’ programmes that need to be completed or continued are done in line with the principles and ambitions of Uniting the Movement.
