Noetic would like to congratulate the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW (the Society) on the launch of their strategic plan: Our Society – Our Plan: Strategic Plan 2013 – 2018. The plan was launched at the Society’s Annual Mass which was celebrated by His Eminence George Cardinal Pell, Archbishop of Sydney on Thursday 22 November 2012.

Noetic is pleased to have worked with the Society to develop the plan over the last 12 months. The plan provides a platform for the Society to build on its many strengths, and respond to some of the challenges it is likely to face in coming years. It was Noetic’s pleasure to engage with the Society’s members, volunteers and staff in the development of the plan, and ensure that their views were reflected in the future direction of the Society. We believe that the plan will enable the Society to continue to provide “a hand up” to those people in need for many years to come.

“Our team feels very privileged to have worked with the Society to further their good works and provide a platform for change which will allow them to respond  to some very important challenges in the years ahead,” said Noetic’s NSW General Manager, Anthony McGinness. “The real challenge begins now as the Society begins to implement the Strategic Plan and continues to respond to the urgent needs of those in need of the Society’s support.”

Ray Reynolds, President, NSW State Council said; “For over 130 years we have been resolute in our commitment to people experiencing disadvantage. But in a modern world, we need to adapt so we can build our capacity as a provider of services to people affected by poverty”.

Mr Reynolds continues; “We need to ensure we are spending government and donor dollars in a way that provides the best possible outcomes for the people we help. We are confident our Strategic Plan provides this platform for change.”
