If Jersey is to make progress towards its vision, government departments, businesses, voluntary organisations and the wider community must all work together. Take, for example, the Health and Wellbeing outcome - ‘we will be an Island where people enjoy long, healthy, active lives’. Many government departments, not just Health and Social Services, as well as partner groups, contribute towards achieving this outcome. But progress also depends on Islanders' individual lifestyle behaviours and choices.
The community's combined efforts must take into account the vision as a whole, not just individual Island Outcomes. To this end, any organisation or strategy can be placed at the heart of the vision framework (see below) to see how its work affects Jersey’s community, environment and economy.
This approach also helps identify the impact of issues, such as climate change or an ageing population, on the Island. And putting children at the centre, for example, promotes thinking not only about education but their safety, health, access to sport and culture and their housing.
