Project Summary:

The funds I am applying for is for a computer program, the 'Community Data Solution', that will be able to manage our data collection, reporting requirements, data scoping to assist us with data evaluation and decision-making. Our services had increased significantly in the last 3 years and our own Excel sheets and forms are no longer suitable to collect and analyse data for improvement of the service, for keeping the information of our client professionally confidential, for tracking the progress and expenditure and for reporting to government bodies and other agencies.
It will be used for all of our clients that require case management; our employment skills program, our emergency relief, our trainees and generally families in Eagleby that frequent Twin Rivers for support.

Project Outcomes:

The expected outcomes are:
Effective case management reporting.
Increased overview of our services, the hours spent on clients and increased responding to staffing needs.
Increased understanding of the demographics of our client and respond appropriately or amend services.
To keep track of the presenting needs or barriers of our clients and to be able to put resources where the needs are most dire.
To tighten the accessibility of our staff to records therefore keeping confidentiality more secured.
To analyse trends and gaps in services.
Increased effectiveness of our services.

The organisation is an IT company focusing on helping the Non-For-Profit sector accessing affordable high quality tools to meet our data collection needs.
