Broadband for Seniors

East Creek's Broadband for Seniors has been extremely popular lately. We are very lucky to have Andras and tutoring our seniors here at East Creek. Despite the name, people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome if they have any general computer, phone, tablet or other serviceable need. There are many benefits in running these classes and they include:

  • provide older Australians with access to computers and the Internet via Internet kiosks
  • support seniors to gain confidence and build skills in using new technologies
  • address the issue of older Australians feeling isolated and 'left behind' in a technological age, and build community participation and social inclusion amongst older Australians

You will receive one on one tutoring as you go through the programme at your own pace. So if you have been putting off starting lessons, it's time to 'bite the bullet'.
You can also come in and use the computers to practise anytime between 9:00am - 4:00pm Monday - Friday.

Phone (07) 4639 2755 to make an appointment.
