Planning for the future requires a great deal of care. Our Board of Directors and Executives have therefore devoted significant time in setting the strategic direction of our service development to ensure our residents, staff and volunteers all benefit.

“This year has been one of significant change not only for our industry but also for all of us here at St. John’s Village. As a not for profit organisation, and despite continuing cuts in government funding to the aged care sector, we have still been able to achieve a year of financial consolidation”, Glenn Phelps, CEO.
Early in the year, the then Minister, Senator Mitch Fifield and Indi MP Cathy McGowan opened the new facilities at St John’s. Senator Fifield said, St. John’s was a ‘can-do organisation’ in raising it’s own capital, acknowledging the federal government’s challenge in catering for Australia’s aged care needs in the future.
Our steady financial progress forward this year has enabled us now to commit over $1million in the coming year to refurbish our housing facilities to meet and exceed the needs of our residents.
Our Strategic Framework 2016+ provides a high level description of our organisation, outlining the reason for our existence and the goals we are pursuing. This framework describes the way in which St. John’s Village wants to conduct interaction between staff and residents, clients, volunteers, government and business stakeholders and the community.
We are committed to providing the highest possible quality and responsive services, and to this end have established a sound financial base to support our operational and growth aspirations. These resources are utilised to identify, develop and provide innovative and supportive services to present and future generations within our region.
Through achieving and maintaining the position of being acknowledged as a responsible corporate citizen, St. John’s Village will continue to be recognised as being a major aged care provider within the sector, and will use this position to have input into the policy development and decision making within the region for older Australians.
