At Belgian Red Cross-Flanders, we leave nothing to chance. We firmly take control of our future too. A few years ago, we carried out the major task of devising an ambitious new five-year plan to ensure it was a worthy successor to Pledge 2015, our previous policy plan.
This major strategic exercise relied on the support of hundreds of people: not just our own volunteers and staff members but also external experts, government representatives, those working for other voluntary organisations, and many more, whose enthusiastic and much-appreciated efforts made a vital contribution to this initiative.
The result of all that brainwork was Strategy 2020. Everyone helps. Our baseline 'Helps people help', launched in 2015 provided a solid foundation for building our future. In line with this philosophy, you'll soon see that self-reliance is the common thread running through everything we do.
