Digital Business Kit for NFPs
Thursday, 15th August 2013 at 5:27 pm

The Australian Council of Social Service will roll out a Digital Business Kit for the Not for Profit sector to assist organisations to use NBN-enabled platforms across Australia.

The welfare peak body says the aim of the program is to assist community sector organisations to use the NBN-enabled platforms in order to deliver more reliable and accessible options to disadvantaged and socially excluded people in Australia.

ACOSS CEO, Dr Cassandra Goldie said ACOSS was well placed to assist community organisations to take advantage of the new improvements to information and communications technology.

“The expansion of the National Broadband Network is an ideal time to increase the community sector’s capability to reach – and provide services for – greater numbers of people living across Australia who may not have the ability to contact services face-to-face,” she said.

The kit will be rolled out in partnership with Not for Profit social justice technology organisation, Infoxchange.

Infoxchange CEO Peter Walton said the NBN provides “significant opportunities” to improve the productivity, reach and impact of the work done by community organisations which will allow them to assist “more people in more places, more efficiently”.

“We are pleased to be working with ACOSS to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of community organisations that assist the most disadvantaged members of our community,” he said.

The project will run over the next four years, working across small and medium organisations in both regional and metropolitan locations.

ACOSS says further research and identification of needs will be initially undertaken to ensure the most effect information and communication technology information can be provided to support organisations well into the future.
