Our Strategic Plan has been developed through input and insights from StandBy’s Lived Experience Advisory Group, a sample of representatives from StandBy service provision sites and the StandBy National Office team. The plan is also informed by a review of leading evidence, policy documents and sector trends relating to suicide postvention.
In the process of developing this plan, we recognise the critical importance of a broad range of perspectives in shaping the continued delivery and growth of StandBy across Australia. Moving forward, StandBy is committed to fostering joint ownership of the Strategic Plan as we are ‘all in this together’.
Implementing the plan
The StandBy Strategic Plan will be implemented over a horizon of three years, commencing in July 2020 and concluding in June 2023.
Detailed planning will be undertaken by the StandBy National Team, advisory groups and local service provision sites on an annual cycle to outline key activities to be delivered to progress the priorities outlined in the plan.
These activities and the overall implementation and impact of the plan will be regularly reviewed and evaluated by the StandBy National Office in partnership with local service provision sites and national program governance groups, including the Lived Experience Advisory Group.
