Beyond Disability and NBN
The Beyond Disability programme was the first mentioned and commended Not-For-Profit organisation, at the National Digital Inclusion Summit in Canberra, on 17/08/2011 by Hon. Senator Stephen Conroy MP.
"I’d like to point out there are already many organisations doing inspiring work to advance digital inclusion... and let me, by way of example, mention a few. Beyond Disability, led by OAM recipient Richard Stubbs, is a team of local volunteers who assist people who are physically disabled and housebound to connect with the world by using online technologies. Beyond Disability has provided access to computer equipment and volunteer assistance to more than three hundred people, including to some of them for more than a decade continuously."
