Results of the 2012 organisational review survey

At today’s AGM, our Executive Officer Sue Russell presented the results of the organisational review survey we undertook earlier this year, and expanded on the implications for Council of Social Services (Dunedin).

This survey has thus far informed a new vision and mission, and three new strategic aims for our organisation:


“COSSD is a respected and valued voice connecting the community sector.”


“We support Dunedin community organisations to maximise opportunities through communication, collaboration and development.”

Strategic aims

  1. Increase COSSD’s sector credibility / profile.
  2. Build organisational capacity.
  3. Increase financial capacity.

What happens next

We are now into the process of governance, staff, and resource reviews, and completing a five-year action plan.
