The eFriends Project Technology Training

The eFriends Project is one part of Befriend Inc, Perth-based non-profit that aims to reduce social isolation by connecting people to life. eFriends empowers individuals to use technology in a way that connects them to their families, friends and wider community. The training is person-centred, fun and creative, and personalised to participants' goals and skill levels.

eFriends promotes connections at 3 levels:

  • Intimate personal and family relationships;
  • Links with a broader network of friends, relatives and colleagues; and
  • Collective connection - of belonging to your community.

Training can be delivered in four ways:

  • One-on-One Training - One-on-one tutoring for people in their own home or public venue of choice (for example a local cafĂ© or library).
  • Group Training - Tutoring for small groups of individuals at a suitable venue.
  • Professional Development Workshops - Workshops for small groups of staff or volunteers working in community organisations.
  • Seminars - Presentations for large groups (approximately 20 people) in organisations or for the public.

People from all walks of life are welcome to participate in eFriends training programs. In particular, we have the capacity to work with older adults living in their own homes or in retirement villages, people with disabilities, and carers.

Your donation allows us to deliver more training sessions to more individuals, ensuring we can work even harder to close the digital divide.
