If you're looking to become more tech savvy head along to the weekly Be Connected program.

Monday 8 October 2018

If you’re over the age of 50 and looking to improve your digital skills – either to better understand how to use a digital device, send emails, get started on social media or share holiday photos with friends – make sure you head along to Mount Alexander Shire Council’s Be Connected program.

Be Connected is a free Australian Government initiative helping older Australians to get the most out of going online, adding new skills and experiences in their life.

Formerly known as Broadband For Seniors, Be Connected is run by Council’s Social Support volunteers and is held every Monday from 9.00am to 12.00noon.

Along with the change in name, the venue has also changed. Sessions are now held at the Castlemaine Town Hall on Lyttleton Street instead of the Senior Citizens’ Centre.

The friendly and knowledgeable team of volunteers can assist participants with the basics of getting connected to the digital network through their computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Shire residents over the age of 50 are welcome to drop in at any time, chat to a volunteer for advice and support and enjoy a cuppa. Volunteers request a two dollar donation to cover morning tea.
