Strategic Plan 2017-2022

Wellways has an important role to play in shaping the future of mental health, disability and aged care services in the community. Our focus on working with individuals, families and the community to transform lives, places Wellways at the centre of building inclusive communities.

We continue to be committed to building our advocacy membership and a strong network of lived experience leaders who can work at both grassroots and systemic levels to support our strategy and deliver community change.

Over the next five years Wellways will be focused on building the systems and processes to ensure that we continue to grow while we deliver leading-edge programs and services to participants and achieve our vision of becoming an employer of choice. Under the stewardship of the Board and CEO, we have developed a strategic plan which is the blueprint for the direction of the organisation and sets for Wellways a clear purpose through until 2022.

A lived experience sounding board helped us shape our new strategy. As we’ve been doing for many, many years, we’ll continue our conversations with our participants, members, supporters and volunteers and help them have their voices heard.

This document outlines the key areas of future focus for Wellways and articulates what we need to be achieve to ensure we are positioned as a leading organisation in our field


Well Together

Well Together: a blueprint for community inclusion, authored by Dr Mark Salzer and Richard Baron of Temple University, was commissioned by Wellways Australia to build on our existing knowledge base and to ensure that the work we do, now and into the future, is firmly grounded in the best available and most contemporary evidence.

The report sets forth fundamental concepts, theoretical frameworks and evidence for community inclusion. It is explicitly intended, in the new NDIS environment, to provide practice principles to guide our work with people experiencing a range of disabilities.
