CES publishes new Strategy - ‘Partnerships, Profile, People’

We are proud to publish our third organisational strategy ‘Partnerships, Profile, People’. The strategy articulates our essential purpose and the impact we intend to have. It describes the difference we want to make in improving outcomes for people living and working in our communities, for the organisations we work with, for our team and for CES as an organisation.

At CES we believe that Ireland and Northern Ireland should and can have excellent public services and we want to play our part in making that a reality. Our purpose is to improve the lives of people on the island of Ireland by supporting the implementation of excellent public services through evidence-informed policy and practice.

Our vision in CES is to be a trusted partner in the design, development, implementation and evaluation of public policies and services. In delivering this strategy we have identified ten strategic priorities, which come under three pillars - Partnerships, Profile and People.

Dr Inez Bailey, CEO of CES said

This strategy was developed during a time of great change and disruption – locally, nationally and internationally. It builds on solid foundations since CES was first established and is the result of an extensive process of engagement with CES staff and Board members. Our service offer describes the expertise and skills of our team, strengthened by our identity as not for profit all island organisation. We are ready to support policy makers and service providers in delivering improved outcomes and value for people living in our communities.’
