Telecom consumers’ group ACCAN has awarded $250,000 worth of grants to seven consumer research projects.
The peak body said it had selected projects that most strongly reflect its strategic goals of protecting and promoting security, privacy and the fair use of communications services and supporting responsible consumption of such services.
Nearly $15,000 of the funding will go to Able Australia Services, $58,000 will go to the Brotherhood of St Laurence, $20,000 to the Council in the Ageing WA and $12,500 to Danielle Notara.
A further $45,000 will go to the Institute for Interactive Media and Learning, $50,000 to Novita Children’s Services and $49,750 to a joint project by the Institute for Social Research, the Centre for Appropriate Technology and the Central Land Council.
