* 1. My PRIMARY relationship with SCCC:

* 2. I've been involved with SCCC for:

* 3. In your own words what is the purpose of SCCC?

* 4. The last strategic plan identified priorities for the organization in 2012. This plan was in effect until this year. SCCC has shared progress on five strategic directions in different ways with various audiences from Board members, volunteers, program participants and clients through a diverse range of communications. The five strategic directions that informed SCCC’s work over the last five years were:

• Direction #1: Continue and enhance an organizational culture of innovation and action that extends across all levels of the organization

• Direction #2: Contribute to an inclusive and revitalized community through public space animation, local economic development, and agency redevelopment to meet community needs

• Direction #3: Foster a culture of collaboration through innovative and non-traditional partnerships, incubation of emerging organizations and development of new service delivery models

• Direction #4: Catalyse and facilitate programs and social change-focused activity in response to community needs: issue identification, research, capacity-building, policy development, communications and mobilization

• Direction #5: Expand the engagement of, partnership with, and service delivery for people living with disabilities.

In your opinion, do you believe any of these directions will still apply in the next five years? If yes, which ones and why. If no, why not- are there other directions you believe the Centre should focus on instead?

* 5. In general, SCCC has met the advancement directions that were identified through the last process. We also know the community and the landscape have changed dramatically since that time. The neighbourhood has become more diverse, poverty in the city is increasing and becoming deeply concentrated, the Atkinson Co-op is undergoing a large -scale redevelopment. This will mean our community will continue to change; it will also mean our programs and services will need to change and expand to meet the needs of the neighbourhood. We would appreciate your feedback in letting us know what you think is most important to you to help the Board of Directors approve a set of directions to guide SCCC through the next five years.
