Strategic Plan

In spring 2022, we commenced the process of developing a new strategic plan. We sought quotations, conducted interviews, and carried out due diligence, appointing S3 Solutions as consultants to guide us through the process of drawing up our new Strategic Plan for the coming years. A survey of members has been undertaken and is, of Summer 2023, being analysed with further research via workshops to take place, to help identify the needs and priorities of polio survivors for the next number of years.

Our 2017 – 2019 Strategic Plan which was extended by the Board, became our Strategic Plan 2017 – 2021. The main development was the additional of a new strategic priority:

Based on its consideration of the external environment, the organisation’s internal strengths and weaknesses, and the findings of the consultation process, the major new development of the extended plan was the new Strategic Priority 5.0 around funding and fundraising. Polio Survivors Ireland’s Board then set five key strategic priorities for the charity over the extension of this plan:

Strategic Priority 1: Directly provide a range of services and supports that assist polio survivors in maintaining their independence, reducing their social exclusion and enhancing their quality of life.

Strategic Priority 2: Inform, educate and assist polio survivors in accessing the services, supports, medical care and benefits they require.

Strategic Priority 3: To advocate for improved statutory provision of services, supports, medical care and social welfare benefits for polio survivors.

Strategic Priority 4: To develop the organisational, Board and staffing structures in the organisation to implement this plan and achieve these objectives.

Strategic Priority 5: To seek increased and, or, new long-term funding and to develop an appropriate and realistic fundraising strategy
