As part of our work supporting local communities we have launched My Give Local - Like our other sites the My is really about you and your area and is substituted for your local area.
We are about open and shared information, it doesn't matter where you post your volunteer ad (we encourage you to publish it on a range of sites and we make it easy to link to back to your My Community Listing.
If you want to promote volunteering positions using data from the Community Information Exchange, please use the Volunteer and Jobs Data Standard (which is part of the Australian Community Data Standard) please contact us for a copy.

Did you know that widgets can make a big difference to where and how you share information?
There are many widgets out there.
According to Wikipedia, a web widget is small application with limited functionality that can be installed and executed on a web page to support the end user. A widget has the role of a transient or auxiliary application, meaning that it just occupies a portion of a webpage and does something useful with information fetched from other websites. Other terms used to describe web widgets include: portlet, web part, gadget, badge, module, snippet and flake. Widgets are typically created in DHTML or Adobe Flash.
Widgets often take the form of on-screen devices such as clocks, event countdowns, auction-tickers, stock market tickers, flight arrival information, daily weather, phone books, calendars and pictures etc.
Below is a collection of widgets that you can add to your listing on My Community Directory.
We have also developed a few My Community Directory widgets to embed on our partner organisation websites. If you would like more information about this or would like to talk more about custom developing a My Community Directory widget for your website, please email [email protected] or call 1300 762 515.
We're excited to be working with the WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) to help connect people to important health services across WA. Over the next few weeks we will be starting data migration. We're so grateful to have the support of WAPHA and other Primary Health Networks across the country. It is through partnerships like these that we have the opportunity to make a widespread positive impact in connecting local communities.

We are starting to see strong patters of use in our Western Australia Data - In fact it is important to note that the data has the same access patterns as in Queensland.

This is the beginning of demand driven service delivery.
