ASCCA Secures More Be Connected Funding

We have some exciting news to share today. The Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA) is thrilled to announce that we have been granted another round of Be Connected Capacity Building funding. This means we will be able to train and support 46 new Digital Mentors throughout 2023/24, right across Australia!

First and foremost, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Good Things Foundation for their continuous recognition of ASCCA’s crucial role in supporting partners nationwide. It’s their faith in us that enables us to empower seniors and improve digital literacy throughout the country.

This time, ASCCA is taking its commitment to the next level. We are thrilled to partner with the esteemed Centre for Accessibility Australia and Charles Darwin University, building upon our already successful partnership model. By combining our strengths and expertise, we aim to reach even more seniors, ensuring they have the necessary skills to navigate the ever-evolving digital landscape with confidence.

We firmly believe that age should never be a barrier to accessing the opportunities offered by technology. Our relaxed and friendly approach makes learning a joyous experience for seniors as they embark on their digital journey. With the support of our dedicated Digital Mentors, seniors will gain valuable skills, enabling them to connect with loved ones, explore new interests, and stay engaged in this modern age.

Stay tuned for updates on this exciting venture as we work tirelessly to empower seniors across Australia. Together, we can bridge the digital divide and ensure that no one gets left behind. Let’s celebrate technology, knowledge, and a brighter future for seniors nationwide!
