At ConnectGV we see the possibility, not the disAbility and seek partnerships that allow many of the programs and options to be offered within the local community. Since its inception in 1954, ConnectGV has continually evolved and now offers Day options, Supported employment, Residential options and Outreach Services and is seen as a leading disability provider withn the Goulburn Valley.
ConnectGV is a not for profit, registered NDIS provider, limited by guarantee, and is governed by a skills based Board of Directors committed to providing diverse options and quality service provision. The Board of Directors is committed to securing the future direction of ConnectGV and has therefore adopted a Strategic Plan. The directions outlined in this strategic plan have been developed by the Board in consultation with ConnectGV key stakeholders and the local community. The plan reaffirms the commitment as a major provider of disability services in the Goulburn Valley. This document focuses on clients and staff and provides the basis for detailed planning. It establishes the template against which decisions are derived, performance is measured and resources are allocated. It acts as the guide to focus agency energy. Please follow the link to view the ConnectGV Strategic Plan 2016 - 2019. The ConnectGV Strategic Plan is due to expire on 20 April 2019, however the ConnectGV Board of Directors adopted an addendum to the Strategic Plan extending it to 20 April 2020. The addendum was approved to align ConnectGV’s strategic direction with future Government planning. Please follow the link to read the Addendum to ConnectGV Strategic Plan 2016-2019.
