Research and development strategy 2022-2024

About the strategy

Through a strong commitment to being evidence-based and data-informed, we drive the conversation that help us shape the way we re-imagine our tomorrow, including developing new models, technology and innovation to meet the changing needs of our customers.

Strategic research priorities – consultation

35 ACH Group leaders invited to a consultation to ensure we appreciate the breadth of interests, needs and aspirations across the organisation that can be addressed through research.

Their input informed the establishment of 7 priority areas and 5 strategic functions, which will guide the way we will scope opportunities and develop research and development collaborations.

Consultation was conducted through one-on-one meetings with (face-to-face and online) and written submissions from eight Head of and one manager representing:
  • Health and Wellness
  • Home Care
  • Clinical
  • Social
  • Residential
  • Hospitality
  • People and Culture

Gratitude Post! 🤗

Last month marked Anke and Ronny's 100th Musical Melodies performance in the community.

Their first performance was at West Park, and their 100th was also here. Anke and Ronny are always working on creating new melodies and perfecting the old favourites, playing ukuleles and banjoleles.

Tammy, the Community Connector Lead at West Park, shared, “So many of us come every month to tap along and sing along to the songs. We thank Anke and Ronny enormously for volunteering their time and bringing some sunshine into our Monday afternoons.”
