Information Technology in the Community and Voluntary Sector
Information technology (IT) is crucial in supporting the voluntary sector’s fundamental role in economic and social development. IT is a necessary and integral aspect of various kinds of community and voluntary support — training, welfare, counselling, advice — in a wide range of fields, from education to planning, from arts to small business development, from health promotion to crime prevention. In the community and voluntary sector, the processes whereby it carries out its activities are a very important part of those activities; the means and the ends are closely interrelated. IT, as a tool for certain processes, can have a significant impact on how voluntary agencies work and what they achieve.
