BE CONNECTED FOR SENIORS
Be Connected for Seniors is a free Australian Government initiative helping you to get the most out of going online for Australians aged 50 and over. Be Connected can help you:
› learn the basics and realise the full potential of going online
› be safe while you’re online
› talk to or see family and friends who live far away, more often
› find new or old friends who share your interests and hobbies
› keep up-to-date with what’s happening in your community and around the world
› learn how to shop online, safely and securely, without leaving home.
And that’s just the start.
We are an official provider of the Be Connected program !
This is a special program for those aged 50 years old and older (whether it is your mother, father, grandparents or you yourself).
