Helping seniors get online

Do you have a family member or older friend in self isolation who would benefit from learning new skills?

‘Be Connected’ is a good place to start.’ Be Connected’ is an Australian Government initiative developed by eSafety and the Department of Social Services to increase the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians. You can use the site to help introduce your family member or friend to the basics of getting online and safely enjoying their online experiences.

‘Be Connected’ offers a short online course designed to help you support people through their first steps to using computers and the internet and improve their digital skills.
