The ICT Gateway is a social enterprise operated by BAF which aims to support local community organisation’s including local Iwi and hapū by building the capacity of these organisations to effectively plan and utilise Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
ICT can be a powerful mechanism to support community organisations to operate as effectively and efficiently as possible. All community organisations are offered initial support from the ICT Gateway at no charge. Our thanks to the TSB Community Trust as the funding partner for this service.
The support to community organisations includes strategic advice and guidance, ICT language translation, ICT plans and most importantly solutions targeting the specific needs of the organisation. We expect the ICT Gateway to continue to grow as further community organisations seek ongoing support with their ICT services via service level agreements.
In 2018 we entered into exciting partnership talks with a local corporate ICT provider which may enable further extension of the benefits of the ICT Gateway service. 2019 will see a 2nd ICT Gateway technician employed to enable us to meet the growing demand for the community focused support of the ICT Gateway.
