Parramatta City Council is offering local Not-For-Profit Organisations an opportunity to receive re-furbished personal computers (PCs) from WorkVentures, under the WorkVentures’ Connect IT program. Connect IT offers quality refurbished PCs to people on Centrelink benefits or who are low income earners, schools and non-profit organisations. Corporations like The Westpac Group and government departments donate superseded PCs, which are refurbished and loaded with Microsoft Windows XP Professional and Microsoft Office 2007. For further information on WorkVentures’ Connect IT program, call 1800 112 205 or visit

This is a one-off project that will allow Parramatta City Council to address IT resource needs and capacity gaps amongst local not-for-profit organisations in a sustainable, equitable and proactive manner.
