Description

Learn about the Be Connected program and how to become a part of the national network who are making digital technology more accessible to older Australians.

Join Helen Milner, CEO of Good Things Foundation, as she introduces the Be Connected program.

Be Connected is a government-funded initiative which provides grants to organisations, enabling them to reach and help those aged 50+ improve their online skills. Good Things Foundation is currently growing and supporting more than 1000 network partners in the Be Connected Network. This national network of organisations ensures seniors have digital skill-building support right in their local community.

Organisations can join the Be Connected Network for free. As a Be Connected Network Partner, you will have access to a range of training resources, delivery support, funding and networking opportunities with other organisations that share your passion for digital inclusion.

This workshop will help organisations like yours to understand more about the Be Connected program and the benefits of joining the network. On the day participants will be able to:

  • Meet Good Things Foundation and understand our vision

  • Learn about the benefits of Be Connected and joining the network

  • Share best practices for engaging seniors who lack basic internet skills

  • Understand the grants available and funding opportunities

  • Ask questions and receive immediate support

Light refreshments will be served on arrival.

Please note, tickets are limited - book early to secure your spot.
