Be Connected

Learning to use technology is one of the best things older Australians can do to deal with social isolation.

Swan Hill Neighbourhood House is offering in-person help and support to people, above the age of 50 and living in the Swan Hill region, who struggle to engage with digital technology and the internet.

Feel free to come in for friendly help and advice.

Through Be Connected,  you will be able to learn the basics of using digital devices and engaging with the internet, including but not limited to:

  • ​talking to or seeing family and friends who live far away

  • finding new friends who share interests and hobbies

  • connecting with old friends

  • keeping up to date with what's happening in communities and all around the world

  • shopping and selling online, safely and securely

  • introduction to online banking, and myGov

  • setting up an email address

  • being safer while online
