Infoxchange to receive $2.7m in NSW Government funding for Digital Transformation Hub
Infoxchange welcomes the NSW Government’s $10 million funding investment for the social services sector, with our Digital Transformation Hub set to receive a boost of $2.7 million. This funding will help to migrate organisations to the cloud and ensure a variety of online tools, courses and resources remain accessible to not-for-profit organisations during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, Alister Henskens, made the announcement today, with the funding forming 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.
“These organisations are working around the clock during this incredibly challenging time to keep some of our community’s most vulnerable people safe,” says Mr Henskens.
“This funding will 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.”
Infoxchange Group CEO, David Spriggs, says the funding boost will allow us to deliver services more efficiently during this time of unprecedented demand.
“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,” says David.
With the recent launch of the Digital Transformation Hub, a resource designed to assist Australian not-for-profits build digital capabilities and resilience, David says the timing of this additional funding boost could not be better.
“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,” says Mr Spriggs.
The Digital Transformation Hub can be utilised by not-for-profits across Australia and provides an array of resources designed specifically for the sector. Organisations can access donated and discounted hardware and software, an ‘expert bar’ where organisations can seek advice on digital marketing, data security and beyond, training, interactive webinars and a library of how to guides covering all things IT.
