Our Strategy


The Charity's 2015-2018 Strategic Plan sets out OCD Action’s vision and the core activities that the Charity plans to undertake . Its purpose is to help the Trustees and the Director plan ahead and ensure that there are clear targets and objectives for each year, so that they are confident that all activities work towards achieving the Charity’s vision.

This three-year plan has been developed by OCD Action’s Trustees and staff, with the valued input of the Charity’s volunteers and the beneficiaries of the services provided. It has been written for all of the OCD Action team and for all supporters who have an interest in seeing the organisation succeed.

Some Background

In 2009, OCD Action launched its first three year plan setting out how the Charity planed to grow and develop. Since then, The Charity has achieved  a great deal and is especially proud of the portfolio of high quality support services it has developed to help individuals affected by OCD. This has proven to be invaluable and has enabled OCD Action to make a real and lasting positive impact on peoples’ lives.

The main theme for the next three years will be “changing lives nationwide”. This means that we will do more to ensure that our services can reach all those who need them no matter where in the UK they live or what community they come from. It also means doing more work that can have a positive impact on all people with OCD such as supporting research and campaigning for better access to quality treatment.

The Charity’s challenge is to undertake this additional work while at the same time maintaining the quality of our current services. To meet this challenge, we will need more people than ever before to support our work, shape our direction and deliver our services. This means recruiting more members and volunteers as well as increasing income from a wider range of sources
