broadband for seniors

I had the great pleasure of launching a new project NEC Broadband for Seniors at the Belgrave South Community House.

Pictured left to right: Lyn Young - Centre Manager, Cr Samantha Dunn - Lyster Ward, Vicki Boyle - trying out the system and Hillary Doulton - program coordinator.

Through NEC the project provides 2 broadband computers specifically for use by seniors with one on one tuition to guide newcomers through the maze of the internet.

Once the project runs its course the community house gets to keep the computers, which will be a wonderful addition to their computer lab.

It's a great initiative and yet another way Belgrave South Community House is assisting our community to build skills and connections.
