New funding boost for Digital Transformation Hub

The money will help to migrate organisations to the cloud and ensure a variety of online tools, courses and resources remain accessible to NFPs during and beyond the pandemic.
Just weeks after launching, the new Digital Transformation Hub is set to receive a $2.7 million boost.
On Wednesday, the NSW government announced a $10 million funding investment for the social services sector aimed at supporting non-government providers through COVID and beyond.
As part of this, Infoxchange will receive $2.7 million for the Digital Transformation Hub to help to migrate organisations to the cloud and ensure a variety of online tools, courses and resources remain accessible to not for profits during and beyond the pandemic.
Infoxchange Group CEO David Spriggs said the timing of this additional funding boost could not be better.
“COVID-19 has had an enormous impact across the not-for-profit sector and the demand for our services, particularly when it comes to migrating essential services delivery online has increased faster than ever before,” Spriggs said.
“We are excited to support the social sector through our Digital Transformation Hub, ensuring not-for-profit organisations have reliable and efficient technology solutions in place to support vulnerable communities around Australia, their staff and volunteers. This additional funding boost will allow us to continue this important work.”
The funding forms part of the NSW government’s Social Sector Transformation Fund, which is delivering an additional $50 million across the not-for-profit sector during the pandemic.
Six other organisations – Social Impact Hub, NCOSS, AbSec, Justice Connect, the Association of Children’s Welfare Agencies and Sefa – also received funding in this round.
Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Alister Henskens said the funding would support organisations to improve how they do business by giving them access to better technology, free legal services, workforce development opportunities and resources to strengthen governance and strategy.
