BisiNetwork – Linking Youth With Business
Thursday, 15th May 2003 at 1:05 pm

Australia’s online counselling service for young people, Kids Help Line has developed a new stand alone Not for Profit organisation that links socially responsible businesses with youth issues.

BisiNetwork has been set up through collaboration with various welfare groups, the media and government to benefit not only the youth of Australia but ultimately their families and the community at large.

Paula Dowd from Kids Help Line says BisiNetwork exists to initiate positive social change through advocating on critical issues affecting the young people of Australia.

Dowd says its aim is to achieve this through a ‘power in numbers’ approach, driven by Australia’s leading business decision-makers.

BisiNetwork is also currently seeking a partnership with the Prime Minister’s Community Partnership for information sharing and the Australian Financial Review as media partner.

Dowd says companies will pay an annual fee to become members, providing them with a cost-effective means to effect positive social change and demonstrate their commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Some of BisiNetwork members will form an advocacy panel to lobby with government on critical issues while other members will work with us in the ‘engine room’ to develop ideas and to communicate the importance of an organisation such as BisiNetwork.

Whilst BisiNetwork will operate as a ‘stand alone’ entity it is supported
by the KHL Research and Publications Unit. Funding will not only go to the
continued provision of KHL services but also to other joint initiative
with youth centric welfare groups which have the potential to reach all
Australian families.

Kids Help Line (KHL) is Australia’s only free 24-hour anonymous and
confidential telephone and online counselling service for 5-18 year olds.

Each week Kids Help Line counsellors respond to 10,000 approaches from
kids around Australia for advice on a variety of issues effecting today’ youth.

Kids Help Line has been operating for the past 12 years. In that time KHL has evolved to become Australia’s leading advocate for youth and the issues facing them in today’s society.

Paula Dowd says that in that time KHL has gathered a wealth of research and data.

This information not only guides KHL’s own research and services but has
also become a valuable resource for government and other youth centric
organisations.
