Our new Vision Strategy, 2023 – 2026

Posted on:  March 22, 2023

Helping young people Feel Safe, Belong and Achieve

We are enormously proud to launch our Vision Strategy for the next three years. This document is the culmination of a long period of work, including initial consultation with staff, trustees and external stakeholders and developed over the last year into a vision for the next chapter in Oarsome Chance’s journey.

From our CEO, Paul Napthine:

“Our first Vision document has been a long time coming and it’s really exciting to now be publishing it. The intention of the 2023 Vision is to help us maximise our impact on students through a strategic focus on belonging, quality and resource. That said, at the heart of the Vision is a needs led approach. A quote that has always stuck with me from James Pierce is ‘Ignore those who tell you which way to go without first understanding where you are.’ For the group of students that it is our pleasure to host, by helping them feel safe and belong, they can then start to thrive and achieve what they want. The reality is, without this approach, we won’t realise the Vision Strategy. It’s going to be a fun journey for us all.

Responding to change and supporting young people who find themselves on the margins of society are at the heart of our mission. Our flexible blend of practical and physical learning, alongside a high level of individual support, within an inclusive community, helps our beneficiaries find their potential, builds their self-worth and opens up opportunity.

Oarsome Chance has always responded to the needs of students with innovation and a willingness to invest in new services. Our new Vision Strategy identifies the core areas of our delivery and identifies how we can continue to provide students with the services and support they need to belong, achieve and thrive.
