Achieving our goals

In order to achieve our vision & mission and as part of our strategic direction, our team has established a set of agreed objectives, which guide and direct everything that we do. These objectives are consistent with our work with young people and our desire to achieve a “world without coercion” and we believe are appropriate and achievable within a reasonable timeframe.

We will at all times also seek to maintain our values, uphold our promise and achieve our overarching mission & vision.

We have six core
objectives:

Z

To become a world-leading, go-to expert about coercion and coercive control using a powerful and knowledgeable network.

Z

To encourage critical thinking in young people, in order to reduce coercive control. This will help those already affected and those who could possibly be affected.

Z

To ensure that the Open Minds Foundation is stable and self-funding and uses funds wisely to achieve its aims.

Z

To collaborate with educational institutions by adding coercion training to their online & offline training programs.

Z

To support complementary charities and groups which facilitate recovery from any type of coercion or coercive control.

Z

To direct victims of coercion to the professional support that they can obtain, including legal advice and guidance to ensure that they are able to make informed decisions.
