Under the leadership of the Board of Directors, Radius Child and Youth Services initiated a strategic planning process to enhance the capacity of the organization to achieve our mission. Youth, employees, contracted consultants, community partner organizations and funders were invited to participate in the process and provided their valuable feedback.

The strategic direction for the future of Radius Child and Youth Services focus on five goals, outlined below:

Strategic Direction

We will be recognized as a centre of excellence for our ‘whole of family’ counselling and prevention approach to children, youth and families impacted by interpersonal violence and neglect. We will accomplish this through strategic partnerships, focused innovation, and our client centered mindset.

Strategic Goal One

A HAPPY, HEALTHY, AND COHESIVE TEAM.

Priorities:

  1. Balance staff well-being and organizational goals.
  2. A compassionate, caring leadership team.
  3. An engaged staff group who are retained by the Agency.
  4. A formalized succession planning/career mapping process is implemented.
  5. A compensation and benefit package that supports the attraction and ongoing retention of staff.

Strategic Goal Two

INCREASED ACCESS TO TIMELY, EFFICIENT, AND INCLUSIVE SERVICES.

Priorities:

  1. Continuous evaluation and streamlining of internal processes to better meet the increasing demands for services.
  2. Holistic family care with young adult treatment capability.
  3. Reduce time between services (i.e. from assessment to treatment) as measured by the Quality Team.
  4. Implementation of a new Client Information System to allow for easier/less time-consuming data entry/tracking for staff and access to better, more robust data and reports.

Strategic Goal Three

A SUSTAINABLE REVENUE AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MODEL.

Priorities:

  1. Initiate opportunities leading to $6 million or more in revenues with the timeframe of this plan.
  2. Be the trainer of choice for other service providers in Radius areas of expertise.
  3. Implement a Radius Training Institute Learning Management System (LMS) to allow for easy access to training and consultation services.
  4. Identify and consider new service delivery models that can support those clients requiring services.
  5. Continue with a sustainable youth dating violence program following the expiry of federal funding.

Strategic Goal Four

TO BE RECOGNIZED EXTERNALLY AS A CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE IN WORKING WITH CHILDREN YOUTH, AND FAMILIES IMPACTED BY INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE AND NEGLECT.*

Priorities:

  1. Be a leader in counselling services for abused children and youth, their families, children with concerning sexual behaviours and youth who have sexually offended.
  2. Grow scale and internal capacity to substantially increase clients directly served.
  3. Expand training/consulting reach throughout the province and Canada.
  4. Maintain and build our research capability through out existing relationship with Nipissing University and one other.
  5. Establish Radius as a thought leader within the industry.

*Achieving this goal is highly dependent on accomplishing priorities 1 and 5 in goal three.
