Read the Social Return on Investment Tech Savvy Seniors NSW CALD Report 2018 outlining the social impact of the Tech Savvy Seniors program for seniors from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Tech Savvy Seniors is a partnership between the NSW Government and Telstra, providing free or low cost technology training to seniors through NSW public libraries and community colleges.
The program aims to help seniors with little or no digital experience develop skills and confidence in using technology for socialising, accessing services or conducting personal business. Training is fun and hands-on, and includes basic introductory courses on using computers, tablets, smart phones, the internet, email and social media.
Training is offered in public libraries free of charge in English and Arabic, Cantonese, Dari, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish and Vietnamese.
Telstra and the NSW Government provide funding for the program in public libraries. Information about funding grants for 2018-19 will be available in 2018.
