Events, vacancies & directories

There is no longer a notice board or directory on CommunityNet where events and vacancies can be listed.

During the redevelopment of CommunityNet in 2013, the functions of the site were reviewed. Based on user feedback, DIA concluded that the old site was cluttered, out of date, and trying to do too many things. The new website should provide one key thing and do it well. It should not duplicate or compete with other sites.

Providing resources designed to strengthen community organisations was identified as the most important function of CommunityNet. The other functions were looked at carefully: how much is the function currently used; is there demand for the function; and are other organisations already providing the function? It was decided that, at this stage, the other functions would not be included on the new site. For CommunityNet it is important that there is somewhere else people can go to get this sort of information - our suggestions are listed below.
