Free, fun digital skills sessions for seniors.
The Tech Savvy Seniors digital literacy training program increases digital inclusion, reduces social isolation and increases access to online information and services among older people.
Seniors represent a large and growing segment of the Australian population. According to the Australian Digital Inclusion Index 2020, people aged 65+ remain Australia's least digitally included age group.
Live a life of continuous learning
The Tech Savvy Seniors training program was designed to help seniors develop the skills and confidence to get connected and participate in the online world.
Digital literacy skills are essential for anyone who wants to actively engage with family and friends across the country and the world. Tech Savvy Seniors gives older people, particularly those in regional and remote areas of New South Wales, the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence to use technology for social networking, to access important services, or conduct personal business online.

- smartphones and tablets;
- social media;
- online shopping;
- Internet banking;
