  2. BACKGROUND TO THE REVIEW • History of losses in the organisation that were not sustainable – • Retirement of Chief Executive – • Appointment of DCA for management support -

  3. MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT • What have we done? - taken action to reduce the cost of the business, returning to surplus; - approached Disability Services Commission for assistance to develop a longer term strategy and as a result they funded this Review;

  4. - Appointed Matrix on Board – September 2010 - Matrix Report delivered – May 2011 - The Board has considered the Report

  5. What are the next steps? • Continued discussions with Community and Stakeholders about the Report; • Development of a three year strategic plan to respond to the key findings of the Report.

  6. STRATEGIC PLAN • Purpose of WA Deaf Society • Values • Key Result Areas

  7. TIMELINE • Next 5 months: - Develop Plan - Consultation with Deaf Community, Government and other organisations - Present to AGM: October 2011

  8. REVIEW REPORT The Review Report is made up of five separate reports: • Interstate Comparison • Funding and Policy Context • Deaf Community Needs • WADS Organisation Review • Strategic Directions

  9. 1. Interstate Comparison • Key finding: • Compared to other States, WADS gets much less $s, including Government support, fundraising and investment income

  10. Community, disability and NRS services per deaf person

  11. SLC and • DEAFINITE EMPLOYMENT • Doing well compared to other Societies.

  12. 2. Funding and Policy Context • Other Deaf Societies get Government $s for deaf people; • WA has no funding for “deaf people”, only for deaf people with other needs. Key action: Work with Disability Services Commission to negotiate satisfactory funding for the deaf community.

  13. 3. Deaf Community Needs • Data from the Community Needs surveys, interviews and group meetings was compared with the DSC Count Me In - Disability Future Directions 2009 strategy.

  14. This Report presents 35 deaf specific pathways to address the priority areas for the deaf community. • A lot of discussion will be had about these and how we work together with the community to address these needs.

  15. 4. Organisation Review • Data was collected from the survey, focus groups and interviews. • 11 areas were identified and 68 recommendations made to the Board.

  16. Services • Community Services • SLC Interpreting • DEAFinite Employment • Community Development • Operations • Communication • Funding • Organisational Culture • Physical Environment • Governance • Governance • DCA partnership • Stakeholder relationships

  17. The Board will develop a work plan for each of these for further consultation.

  18. 5. Strategic Directions • A summary of the other Reports and recommended actions. • Still work to do but key directions will be:

  19. Strategic Plan 2011-2014 • Purpose of WADS (including who is target user group) • Values • Key Result Areas • Service Plan • Fundraising Plan • Complete for AGM – October 2011

  20. Partnerships • With Government and non-Government organisations • WA Foundation for Deaf Children – development of Cottesloe land and community hub
