gemma-ansell-silver-serviceBega Connection

Silver Service, a start up at the Bega Valley Innovation Hub, has joined the Living Connected Network. Founded by Gemma Ansell, Silver Service aligns perfectly with the Living Connected approach in the form of a mobile kiosk where seniors can get advice and support using digital devices for essential everyday tasks becoming more connected to their family, friends and the world around them.

Banksia Village Broulee

Our newest seniors’ Computer Club opened on July 4 with a crowd of 25 enthusiastic residents of Banksia, located in the seaside village of Broulee, in the heart of Eurobodalla’s stunning nature coast. As has been our experience elsewhere, participants had a range of devices and levels of knowledge. All are keen to get help with individual problems but listen to advice to others while waiting their turn. We will balance groups sessions on popular topics with 1-on-1  help.  Residents have banded together to get wifi hubs while waiting for the NBN to arrive!

My Community Project VOTE 1 for us in Keira   mycommunityproject.service.nsw.gov.au

Planned for 2020, this cross-generational project will train and mentor high-school students to teach seniors digital skills and, in turn, seniors will teach students life skills from the days before the Internet. In this way our whole community benefits!
