SYC Strategic Plan 2.0wards 2018

SYC Strategic Plan 2.0wards 2018

Show Your Colours was originally released in 2011/2012 and is the strategic framework for SYC to achieve Our Purpose. The aspiration to extend and deepen SYC’s services remains today – with strong progress made across the five strategic priorities.

In this update, a sixth priority has been added to reflect that by working with others, SYC can help people more and help more people.

The SYC Strategic Plan 2.0wards 2018 entails the following six strategic priorities:


Delivering our reach and impact nationally is key to SYC helping people more and helping more people.


Developing and delivering innovative client and management practices means continuously challenging the way SYC operates and delivers services to clients.


SYC will champion conversation around how more people in Australia can experience stability and prosperity in their lives.

Technology & Connectivity

Developing and supporting technology and connectivity will help SYC become increasingly effective.


Through positively influencing government, business and the community, SYC will achieve better outcomes for the people the organisation supports each and every day.


Connecting, collaborating and partnering with like-minded organisations and individuals can help SYC to gain the best possible outcome for both SYC and the people the organisation supports.
