A number of local social sector organisations across the Tweed are set to receive a funding boost to help them modernise their operations and improve the services they deliver.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said the NSW Government’s Social Sector Transformation Fund was supporting small to medium sized organisations with grants.

“Social services organisations play a pivotal role delivering support to some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” Mr Provest said.

“They’ve had to adapt how they deliver services during the pandemic and this funding will help them invest in improved business processes, technology upgrades and new ways of reaching out to their communities.”

The Social Sector Transformation Fund supports organisations working in the social and health services sector, including homelessness, housing, disability, youth, health and child and family services.

Organisations receiving funding locally include:

  • Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre Inc – $50,000 to strengthen digital capabilities
  • Tweed Valley Early Childhood Intervention Service – $20,000 to assist with reinventing the service delivery model via upgrades to technology and CRM platforms
  • Tweed, Byron and Ballina Community Transport Inc – $20,000 to purchase digital technology devices to update the booking system

“This funding will enable grassroots community organisations to invest in practical changes that will help them remain viable long into the future.”
