Be Connected Program

Community organisations in Goldstein can apply for a share of up to $20 million in funding to help get seniors online.

The Turnbull Government is providing grants of up to $50,000 to local organisations to deliver free digital skills training to people over 50 as part of the Be Connected Program.

By joining the Be Connected Network, organisations help seniors to maintain their independence and keep connected with family and friends. Participants in the program get free, personalised face-to-face coaching and access to interactive tutorials and resources.

More than 1,500 organisations have already joined the Be Connected Network across Australia, including libraries, community centres, clubs and aged care facilities.
