Presbyterian Support East Coast's (PSEC) Strategic Plan sets out our direction for the next five years.

As Board Chair, I whole-heartedly believe that what PSEC aims to achieve is worthwhile. We are an organisation based on Christian principles, and have a heritage founded in the Presbyterian Church.

Going forward into the future, my vision for PSEC is that we will continue to be a strong and vibrant charity, which is vitally aware of the needs of the East Coast community.
