At the end of the month, the ACCC's ScamWatch theme was Get Smarter with Your Data.

Chinese Delegation in Foyer

ASCCA was invited by the Australian Human Rights Commission, to host a Study Visit on the Rights of Older Persons through the China-Australia Human Rights Technical Cooperation Program (HRTC) on behalf of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The delegation from China was led by the Ministry of Civil Affairs and took place at ASCCA’s Training Rooms on the 15th April 2015.

David Bennett gave a presentation showing the role of ASCCA in promoting the successful and enjoyable use of technology by seniors through our ASCCA Clubs, along with advocacy on behalf of Australian seniors.

Diane Brentnall presented a great lesson with 10 happy and keen students. Their participation and willingness to answer questions was very much appreciated by the delegates from China.

Board Members: Jim Parker , Annette Stuckey and Alwyn Stuckey were also on hand to answer questions and offer hospitality on behalf of ASCCA. Gifts were exchanged and ASCCA received a beautiful hand-made carving with fine embroidery.

ASCCA helps launch the new NSW Seniors Card app

A Current Affair - Seniors Card App

The NSW Minister for Ageing, John Ajaka, and Kathryn Greiner AO, from the Advisory Council on Ageing, choose ASCCA to assist in the launching the NSW Seniors Card App.

The video here was created by Channel 9 in early March 2014. It shows ASCCA staff demonstrating the app to volunteers from seniors computer clubs in the ASCCA Learning Centre in Pitt St.

The free app is available in the Google Play Store for Android, and in the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad. Be aware that this is a phone app when seaching in these stores, but it works on tablets as well.

At the moment, the app can find places near you that offer discounts to Seniors card holders. The app will evolve to include other features to benefit seniors. It can be used as a supplement to, or replacement for, the printed Seniors Card discount book.

In April, Nine's A Current Affair again featured the Seniors Card App in some more detail with the assistance of ASCCA volunteers.
