Digital Connection Project for seniors

If you would like to learn how to get the most out of your mobile phone, computer, laptop, iPad or tablet the Digital Connection Project for seniors might be just what you are looking for. The project also supports older people to access a device and/or internet connection.

There are two ways the program can help you to get online:

In your own home

If you are registered with My Aged Care, Macedon Ranges Shire Council can offer you face-to-face learning in your home.

The Be Connected program

Friendly volunteers can offer you face-to-face learning at the Gisborne, Woodend, Romsey and Kyneton libraries, Kyneton Community House and Lancefield Neighbourhood House. If you prefer you can connect to the program from home via Zoom. The Zoom option is available in all areas of the Macedon Ranges.  

If you are eligible through My Aged Care, you may be able to borrow a device from the Gisborne, Woodend or Kyneton libraries or from Kyneton Community House.

You may also be able to get assistance with internet connection.

The project is a joint initiative of the Central Victorian Primary Care Partnership, Cobaw Community Health, Macedon Ranges Shire Council, Goldfields Libraries, Kyneton Community House, Lancefield Neighbourhood House, Gisborne Men’s Shed, and Macedon Ranges Health.
