Branch and Group planning

Why have a plan?

Having a plan is an essential tool to help your branch or group to achieve your goals.

"People don't plan to fail. Instead they fail to plan."

There are lots of good reasons to work out the details of what you want to do and to organise them as actions in a plan. For example:

  • To understand what is and isn't possible for your branch or group to do
  • To keep everything organised and everyone focused on what is to be done
  • To show members of your MND community that your branch or group is well ordered and dedicated to getting things done
  • To increase the chances that people will do what needs to be done
  • To make sure you don't overlook any important details
  • To save you time, energy, and resources in the long run
  • To help our Association deliver our strategy and mission

Getting started!

Before you begin please read this introductory document which will outline more of the process.

Your plan does not need to be long and complicated. It just needs to set out what your branch or group is going to do in clear and simple terms:

  • What needs to happen?
  • Who needs to do it?
  • By when?
  • Anything else? Additional things to know such as what resources are needed or who needs to know what you’re planning to do?

Please find below a few tools which can help you get started. You don’t need to use them all, just choose the ones you think will help you the most.
