Reach across Australia
Through existing partner networks, ANDI has access to millions of Australians through databases, service provision, events, forums, mail-outs, campaigns, staff and volunteers.
ANDI will build on the supports and networks provided by partners to make sure that information about ANDI is disseminated and that as many people as possible contribute to discussions about holistic progress. Each week, our partners are talking to over a million Australians in total. Some examples include:
- the Uniting Church in Australia is the third largest Christian denomination with over 2,000 congregations and more than one million people claiming affiliation. It delivers services to over two million Australians across 1,300 sites and relies on the contributions of over 35,000 staff and 20,000 volunteers
- the YMCA has over 500 centres, visited by in excess of two million people annually
- the Australian Conservation Foundation has over 41,000 members and supporters in total
Many local governments have provided support to ANDI and are interested in progressing its evolution. Their links to large numbers of people on a local community basis will form part of ANDI’s network strategy.
ANDI’s interactive website will also be used as a key tool to network with interested parties. A mailing list will be established of interested website users and the domains of most interest.
Through these means, ANDI has the ability to gauge the views of millions of Australians, both in the formative phases and into the future.
