The publication of the previous Corporate Plan coincided with the launch of Command of the Oceans, a ground-breaking preservation and learning project that has exceeded all expectations and has formed the foundation for delivery against a wide range of objectives set out in the previous plan. It has also been the catalyst for receiving external recognition from our peers and industry.
Since then and very significantly, we have delivered our Fitted Rigging House project ahead of schedule. This has unlocked the financial sustainability of the charity on a revenue level at our current operating capacity – enabling us, as an organisation, to look forward to the future on a more sustainable revenue foundation.
Recognising achievement against all of these goals and not wishing to be an organisation that stands-still, we have brought the development of our next Corporate Plan forward by one year to align with the Trust’s vision for the future and to support enhanced delivery against our charitable objectives.
Our previous Corporate Plan objectives have achieved the following:
Preservation through balanced and appropriate re-use leading to a sustainable future:
Development of our education reach by creating excellent, engaging and informative visitor experiences, appropriate partnerships and communications programmes that are relevant to 21st Century audiences:
Further development of relationships with stakeholders and funders that subscribe to our long-term vision:
Investing in our people:
Being an entrepreneurial charity:
As with the rest of the world, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is closely monitoring the situation around the global pandemic of COVID-19.
It is with sadness that following UK Government guidelines we have closed our visitor attraction to the public until further notice.
This closure also extends to Call the Midwife Official Location Tours.
Whilst outside of our control, we apologise for any inconvenience caused during this difficult time and would like to thank all our visitors for their understanding during this challenging period.
We are taking forward orders and enquiries for business ‘post lockdown’ – Master Ropemakers Ltd, film & TV productions, Call the Midwife tours, group travel, weddings, corporate hospitality and conferences.
