Living Connected

Digital Inclusion for Seniors

$

Living Connected is a non-profit social enterprise, which runs a network of centres and partnerships helping seniors learn digital skills on a 1 to 1 basis. Based at the iAccelerate Business Incubator at Wollongong University, the network extends from Bulli to Broulee. Our highly trained team of digital mentors, mainly volunteers, provide our services to senior citizens. We find the further we get from the big cities, not only is there a greater need for digital inclusion by isolated seniors but also greater geographical challenges in providing local mentors. 

PreCOVID19, our services were all face to face in groups or at home and most learners had their own devices. Following COVID19 restrictions, face-to-face stopped and we adapted all our existing mentoring services to run online. We now run 5 weekly Zoom group meetings and advertised them to existing clients in the Illawarra/Shoalhaven. These sessions can now be accessed by seniors in our targeted outer regional areas as anyone can reach us online. We will retain the Zoom program for learners isolated by circumstances and distance even if we resume some face-to-face services
