RIDBC 2016 - 2020 Strategic Intent

Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC) is embarking on a new era of service provision for Australians with vision or hearing loss. Over the next 5 years, RIDBC will go through a substantial evolution. We are designing a future to ‘do more’ for those who need us.

Reaching more people, delivering best practice and securing our future

Our 2020 vision is clear:

  • We’ll reach more people through expansion and partnerships.
  • We’ll develop, deliver and demonstrate best practice in everything we do.
  • We’ll secure our future, continuing to strengthen our identity and operations whilst remaining relevant and responsive to the needs of the children, adults, families and professionals who need us.

Our ambition includes:

  • Expanding RIDBC’s reach.
  • Establishing Centres of Excellence for vision and hearing.
  • Relocating within Macquarie University.
  • Establishing new RIDBC Renwick Centre Programs.
  • Reviewing our brand.
  • Increasing performance, efficiency and sustainability of the organisation.

Our mission remains unchanged and unwavering, to provide quality and innovative services, to achieve the best outcomes for current and future generations of Australians with vision or hearing loss. 

We will ensure all current and future children, adults, families and professionals who receive services from RIDBC, as well as our many volunteers, donors and supporters, are kept informed and updated on our plans as they evolve.
