Since the Vulnerability Roundtable in October 2016, TCP has transitioned from an idea to an initiative and now, a not-for-profit, member-led organisation. Over this time, we have gained deep insight as to how we can collectively work to remove barriers within our ecosystem to ensure that everyone has access to the essential services they need to thrive.
Over the last 12 months, the TCP leadership team have been working with partners across the country to capture this insight and develop TCP’s strategic vision for the future. We learnt that:
- People are not receiving an optimal experience from their service and support ecosystem. In some cases, they are left worse off.
- The challenge is not to fix people, rather to unite and shape a system around what works better for people.
- We know that organisations across all sectors are motivated to do better for people experiencing vulnerability and see value in multi-stakeholder collaboration.
- Some of the opportunities to strengthen multi-stakeholder collaborations can be found in building stronger networks, building capability and creating more spaces for collaborative initiatives with a strong focus on learning and feedback.
This collective insight has lead to the development of TCP’s 2020-2022 Strategic Plan.
