The BPD Community's Theory of Change describes the process whereby we can change the world: a big ambition but one we are proud of.
The Theory of Change identifies our intermediate outcomes and the activities we use to achieve those outcomes. It guides our strategic planning process in the three key areas: Program Planning, Operational Planning and Governance Planning. Through working in each of these key area, we identify our immediate outcomes and the strategies we employ to achieve them.
We create community.
BPD Community is a community of people with lived experience of BPD, the people who work with us and those who support us.
We are a 'community of interest', our interest is identified by our mission to replace stigma and discrimination with the hope and optimism that recovery is possible. This is especially important when we consider that most people with BPD do not have access to BPD informed treatment. We are building a community of practice. A community of practice requires us, as an organisation, to act always in the ways that support recovery. The four pillars that hold up relational support in BPD are: validation, boundary setting, mindfulness and radical acceptance. Through our programs we pursue our understanding of these four pillars and actively embrace the skills and techniques that lead us to become compassionate. The requires us to embrace the two wings of the dove of peace: gratitude and giving.
The strategic plan
The BPD Community Strategic plan below outlines the focus of our work.
Every end of financial year, we review the relevance of the work we do, measure the needs of our community and assess the environment in which we live.
