  • Saint Lucia National Trust 2010-2020 Strategy

    Posted on September 14, 2015 by in

    We aim to build greater support for our ongoing conservation work and campaign on key issues to champion the cause of heritage conservation in Saint Lucia. To do this we must continue to develop and manage our properties to the highest standards in both conservation and customer care and work to ensure that people not only recognise our name, but also understand the full scope of our activities, including education and advocacy on the conservation of our heritage. We must also develop the Trust into a stronger and more financially stable organisation, developing our staff and volunteers to help them take on the challenges that face us. In managing our assets, including our people, properties and resources, we will aspire to best international standards and will champion creativity and innovation in all our activities.

    The Plan shows how we will build greater support for our ongoing conservation work and campaign on key issues to champion the cause of heritage conservation in Saint Lucia. Our objectives are summarised as:
    •Deliver core conservation work to the standards of our Conservation Principles
    •Inspire the widest possible audience to join the Trust, to enjoy Trust properties, and to support our conservation values;
    •Champion the cause of Saint Lucia’s heritage and build awareness of the full range of our activities; and
    •Develop our culture, systems and skills to operate more effectively, efficiently and sustainably.

    The Plan consists of two parts: this document, which is the Strategic Plan, and a separately bound document called the Corporate Plan. The Strategic Plan sets out the Protecting Fair Helen’s Patrimony medium term approaches the Trust is taking to achieve its long term Vision. The progress made towards the Vision is measured against a set of Key Performance Indicators detailed in Sections IIe and IIf. The Annual Implementation Plan will be guided by both the Strategic Plan and the Corporate Plan and is revised each year; it gives an overview of which aspects of the Strategic Plan are to be taken forward over the course of one year, and is drawn up in conjunction with the budgets estimated in this Plan and with the annual budget process.
