There are many people (including NESB) that could benefit
from access to information technology. (other groups may
include: Aboriginals and TSI, unemployed, impoverished
families / individuals, etc) 

Certainly provision of this service to people on low
incomes (in general) will include the NESB group.
(Although in the case of Melbourne - will not be limited
to it.)
