ENCITE: A model to help Voluntary Organisations use ICT effectively
Local Voluntary Organisations (LVOs) play an important role in Irish society. LVOs can be based on community, political, sporting, recreational or civil needs. These organisations facilitate information dispersion, social interaction, employment creation and service provision in communities. However, many of these LVOs are struggling to exist and maintain their role in Irish society; one of the primary reasons for this problem is their reluctance to embrace and use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) effectively. Voluntary organisations need help to identify a role for ICT and to subsequently design and develop technical solutions. The ENCITE model will facilitate Irish LVOs to plan and design applications that will support their operation and empower their members.
