Broadband for Seniors internet kiosk
We are pleased to let you know that Seniors’ Centre now has a Broadband for Seniors internet kiosk. The kiosk features two computers with broadband access for use by anyone over the age of 55 in our local community. We are also providing training, so beginners are very welcome!
Broadband for Seniors is part of a $15m Australian Government initiative to increase the skills of older Australians using computers and the internet.
The new internet kiosk offers the opportunity for older people to discover how the web can play a great part in helping them to stay in touch with friends and family, along with offering access to the wealth of information available online. This is their chance to find out what all the excitement is about.
So if you, or someone you know, would be interested in learning more about computers and the internet for free, please pay us a visit or contact us on 9978 4128 for more information on training and kiosk access times.
