2023 - 2025 Strategic Plan

In 2022, the Board and staff reviewed and realigned our Strategic Plan for 2023-2025. The experience of the COVID-19 pandemic was unprecedented, causing many to question social norms and desire a more sustainable and compassionate future.

To take action and create the kinds of communities we all want to live in we need to change the systems, behaviours and attitudes that perpetuate entrenched poverty, inequity and exclusion, WACOSS challenges and develops alternative solutions to systematic structures, community priorities and galvanises community support.

Encompassing a shared vision for compassion and commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable Western Australians, our theory of change includes:  

  • Working together to build ownership – Collectivise;
  • Building broad base of community support – Convince; and
  • Creating pathways for systematic change – Create.

Our strategic plan is bold in its ambition, challenging belief structures and cultural norms, and building community empathy.
