An innovative, community-focused new online space – My Community Directory – will be launched by Council on May 1 to provide a place for the community to connect, share local events and happenings and list local services and organisations.
“During the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan consultation, it became clear that people were very keen to have on online platform that would better connect the community and provide support to help community groups thrive and share events,” said Enzo Accadia, Council’s Section Leader Community Programs.
For some years, Council has been supporting the CoffsConnect website – http://coffsconnect.com.au – where local groups and services could list events and promote themselves.
CoffsConnect will be decommissioned on April 30. Groups listed on that site have been contacted and invited to become part of My Community Directory – https://www.mycommunitydirectory.com.au/New_South_Wales/Coffs_Harbour
“It’s important that everyone that had a listing on CoffsConnect, switches over to the new platform so that they don’t miss out,” added Mr Accadia.
“My Community Directory will provide easy access to up-to-date information regarding the vast number of local organisations in our area. It is a simple and secure community directory for organisations to manage and update their own information.
“It is also linked to My Community Diary, which is an online diary of community and service organisation events. To list an event, members must be linked to a member organisation.”
My Community Directory is also available as an app for mobile devices.
Anyone using the My Community Directory also has access to a support team, online, by phone, or via email.
