SWIN 2014-2018 Strategic Plan

Throughout 2014, SWIN prepared a comprehensive strategic plan with assistance from CPR Group, Queensland's sport and recreation planning and training specialist.  Preparation of the plan involved extensive consultation with core, organisation and community members of SWIN, as well as external stakeholders from the southwest Queensland Region.

SWIN identified a need for a clear, concise strategic plan to document its current situation and achievements to date, to define the opportunities and challenges facing the organisation, to establish realistic development and growth targets, and to map out future projects.

Given the high level of input from the consulted during the document's preparation, the SWIN Strategic Plan 2014-2018 is an outcomes-focused plan, which identifies realistic strategies and projects to improve the SWIN business and enhance service delivery for the benefit of all customers throughout southwest and beyond.

The next five years present an exciting time for SWIN.  A period of growth beckons, whereby SWIN expects to make a real difference to the lives of Indigenous Queenslanders by:

  • Running of more physical and activity programs to improve levels of physical, emotional and social wellbeing
  • Increasing the association's viability and improving its ability to financially support individuals and teams through small grants
  • Expanding the SWIN brand, with a view to increasing Indigenous participation in society and increasing acceptance of Indigenous culture
  • Improving the partnerships with government, state and national sporting organisations, local primary and high schools and sporting clubs and associations throughout the region to facilitate better service delivery.  The SWIN Executive anticipates that, through such partnerships, the association could become a major provider of physical activity programs in the region
  • Professionalising the association's organisational structure and human resource management to result in more paid personnel and additional voluntary assistance with program delivery, thereby improving sustainability.

SWIN intends to continue working with CPR Group to ensure efficient implementation of the projects listed in the association's strategic plan.  CPR Group is a leader in the field of sport and recreation planning and training.  Since 1997, CPR Group has assisted over 3,000 organisations to deliver successful projects.  CPR Group helps to improve client's sustainability and ensure that local, regional and state sport and recreation organisations can remain viable in an increasingly competitive market.

The SWIN executive and Steve and Michael from CPR Group sincerely thank all those who took the time to contribute their ideas during the planning process.  SWIN is confident that its strategic plan will add value for all customers by ensuring that organisational improvement is progressed in a positive, readily quantified fashion.  Using the strategic plan, SWIN will be able to closely track its progress in achieving the identified outcomes over the next five years.
