How are we Achieving our Goals


How is the Alliance Achieving its Goals?

The Alliance has four Focus Areas: 1. Children 2. Young People 3. Parents and 4. The City.  In 2018 the Alliance set Goals for these Focus Areas and progress in these areas is outlined on the following pages:

1. GOAL: Children start school ready to learn

2. GOAL: Children and Young People are emotionally resilient and do not experience anxiety and depression

3. GOAL: Confident and engaged parents support their children’s development and learning

4. GOAL: The Blue Mountains is a Child and Youth friendly city

In addition to these focus areas for activities under the Ultimate Outcomes, the Alliance is also committed to ensuring that Families have access to collaborative service networks and the Alliance works together effectively and measures its impact


How Alliance Members contribute to Outcomes


Planning templates

The core of our work is member organisations collaborating on agreed projects that deliver significant and measurable benefits to children, young people and families living in the Blue Mountains.

Some of the ways that members plan activities and monitor progress is through planning templates.

Members use the first template to plan their activity and think about what they want to achieve, how they might track their progress and what a successful outcome might look like.

Members use the second template to think about why they would like to undertake a project, how it links to the Ultimate Outcomes, and what impact the project might have.

Examples of our planning templates can be viewed and downloaded by clicking images to the right.
