A cheerful group selfie at a 'Be Connected' session on Christmas Island. The photo features a diverse group of seniors seated around a long table, with a facilitator at the forefront smiling widely at the camera. The participants are engaging with each other and the session, with informational leaflets and notes scattered on the table. The room is bright and functional with emergency signage and equipment visible, emphasizing the community and safety aspect of the event.

Empowering Digital Literacy in the Indian Ocean Territories:

As many of our members know, ASCCA has been a Be Connected Network Partner from the very first steps towards the national network it is today, in late 2017.  Since then we believe we have been an integral cog in the wheel for this nationwide initiative to empower ‘older Australians’ when it comes to technology. Since then, we have built on both Nan and Jenny’s impressive networks, spanning the length and breadth of the country to partner with other peak bodies and organisations who engage seniors in some way, shape or form, but not necessarily having the resources within their organisations to focus on digital literacy for their older volunteers, staff or community members.
