Online tools deliver better business; better services for all

Community organisations across Australia will now have access to a free online tool, helping them to promote their services in the wider community.

Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Mal Brough, today officially launched Media Team Australia’s Online Tools at Parliament House, Canberra.

"Community organisations and their business partners face many challenges on how to best promote their good work to the wider community," Minister Brough said.

"The Online Tools, developed by Media Team Australia, will assist community organisations to improve and professionalise their media marketing and public relations activities.

"With the help of these tools, business and community partners will be able to work together to promote the success of their partnerships.

"The Howard Government provided a $97,000 grant, under the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership, to Media Team Australia to develop and deliver these tools.

"The tools will include how to effectively promote to the media, stage successful community events and develop user-friendly websites," Minister Brough said.

Since 1999, the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership has been supporting community organisations and businesses to work together to achieve positive outcomes for their communities.
