Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
WRI entered 2015 focussed on strengthening its core consulting business and servicing regional Australia with credible research to support decision making. Key objectives included strengthening the research team, targeting higher education providers, local councils and organisations submitting funding applications as well as leveraging previous research projects.During 2015 WRI completed 17 research projects with eight of these commissioned by new clients. In third quarter 2015, WRI undertook a major client and stakeholder survey to inform the next stage of its revised organisational structure and business plan. With the planned launch of new Consulting Services in 2016, and the publication of new regional reports, we expect that WRI will continue make a positive difference in rural and regional Australia, contributing to growth in jobs, economic activity and sustainable growth in our communities.
