What's the role?

  • Assist in keeping the SAcommunity directory up-to-date with an opportunity to collect community stories for our media channels
  • Search online for information about community services including government services, non-government charities and not-for-profits.
  • Call, email and interpret responses from organisations to obtain current details, summarise information and use style guides to update and arrange data on our web-based public directory and database.
  • Interview community service groups to create storytelling articles for our social media channels to foster capacity building, promote local community activities and events and help raise the profile of local services and encourage public participation.

SAcommunity's centralised database conserves, maintains and maximises community service information with the data used by a stakeholder network of government, local councils, public libraries, providers and public for communication, research, decision-making, networking, partnerships and referrals.
