8/10/2018

Disability service providers in Victoria will be able to access marketing and communications training, templates and resources, through online platform Lumin at a highly-subsidised rate for a limited time.

Marketing is becoming a necessity for disability service providers. The active attraction and retention of clients in this environment is a sign of success. Lumin is an ideal tool for organisations to be able to do marketing and communications well, with limited resources.

Lumin is co-designed with the community sector and is responding to the needs of organisations, with 16 courses currently available, and more being added. Each course has six video lessons and includes tools, templates and links to resources. You can browse courses and preview lessons now at Lumin.

Courses include:

  • Developing a marketing strategy
  • Producing video content
  • Choosing social media channels
  • Interacting with philanthropists
  • How to run a great community campaign

The first 30 organisations to register and confirm interest in the Lumin memberships valued at $1,188 (+GST) will receive the subsidised rate of:

  • $165 (+ GST) for NDS members
  • $248 (+ GST) for NDS non-members

This offer is made possible through a partnership between NDS and Lumin. The subsidised rate will be offered to 30 applicants. The subsidy is available with thanks to the Victorian Government’s Transition Support Package funding and forms part of NDS’s learning and development offering. NDS members receive a further subsidy because of their membership benefit.

Victorian disability service providers can express their interest in purchasing an annual membership by registering through Eventbrite. NDS will provide a Licence Agreement for review and signing. The 12-month membership will commence upon payment of the invoice.
