Call for Volunteers
Living Connected is currently being run by a hardworking and enthusiastic team supported by a group of volunteers. As we expand, we would love to build up our band of volunteers as many of our beginner clients need 1 on 1 help, often on some very basic computing tasks. If you know anyone interested please ask them to contact us, particularly if they live near any of our Dropin locations. It is most rewarding work
Free Drop-in Sessions Expand
Living Connected now has an extensive network of Free Dropin Centres to help people learn to use IT. We now have new Centres at the Illawarra Multicultural Services in Auburn St, St Vincent de Paul in Coniston and the North Warilla Community Centre. This adds to our session at the Unanderra Community Centre, the Multicultural Aged Care Village at Warrawong, Milton IRT and our Tuesday and Thursday morning Dropin Sessions at iAccelerate. See our Website for details and pass on an invitation to any potential customers.
Our partnership with Wollongong Library is now taking off as our team members are getting up to speed with the library’s online and home services. We will deliver some outreach services to citizens unable to get to the library and wanting help at home. Through the Multi Cultural Council of the Illawarra, we are having a great time assisting Portuguese and Turkish social groups. In partnership with Warrigal Care, we now have keen groups at Warrigal Shell Cove and Albion Park.
New workshop topics
We have found that many seniors need help registering and navigating provider websites such as myGov so are developing workshops on a variety of related topics.
