Following consultation with clubs and other key stakeholders HCB published a 4 year Strategy.  The Strategy sets out the outcomes to be achieved for the period 2014 - 2017. In addition HCB publishes a Business Plan each year. The plan sets out the practical steps which the HCB will take in order to achieve its strategic outcomes.

HCB also publishes an Annual Report which highlights to our members, stakeholders and funding partners the scope of HCB’s activities and key achievements each year. The report demonstrates the impact of a wide range of activities through a series of case studies in our four strategic areas.
