South Burnett CTC: Vision/Mission/Values

Our Vision

In CTC's geographic area of operation all residents - regardless of gender, age, background, culture, health or ability - will have access to the services and support they require to participate and feel valued in the economic, social and cultural life of the community to the full extent of their capacity and desires.

Our Mission

Proactively and reactively, alone or in collaboration with appropriate others:

  • Establish and deliver services in accordance with our vision
  • Identify gaps in the access to and quantity and quality of services and supports in our area of operation (eg South Burnett or regions otherwise designated by our funding bodies)
  • Identify means of addressing such gaps
  • Lobby for and/or encourage appropriate government, non government organisation or corporate service provision
  • Source funding to provide required services  
  • Engage in appropriate business activities to raise revenue to fund worthwhile community activities and provide a sound base for the organisation's future
  • Build community capacity to realise our vision
  • Enter any relevant activities that further our objectives

...in a manner that recognises and respects the rights and responsibilities of all people and the need to address issues on a broad front, while focussing particularly on the needs of disadvantaged and/or marginalised members of our communities.
