Putting Farrer seniors in the digital age

Putting Farrer seniors in the digital age

The Abbott Government is investing $1.3 million to assist older Australians
continue building their digital skills via the Broadband for Seniors programme.

Under the programme, local seniors across Farrer continue to have free access to
computers and internet training, to ensure everyone can keep up in the digital age.

Local MP, Sussan Ley, says Broadband for Seniors offers “supportive on-line skills
training for email, cyber safety and social media to stay in touch with friends and family”.

“28 of 1600 Broadband for Seniors kiosks Australia-wide are in Farrer, set up in local community centres,
libraries, clubs and aged care centres with volunteer tutors providing one-on-one or small group training in a wide range of on-line topics.”

*Local sites include Albury and Broken Hill and 18 other locations across the electorate.
