Our Great Team
For 2 years, the Living Connected team faced the unexpected challenges of the pandemic. The team helped people learn to use their digital devices to deal with the isolation that came with lockdowns, and the restrictions imposed as we open up. We have received wonderful feedback from many helped. Some of our team got together and shared a few pizzas after our AGM to celebrate our successes and contribution to the community.
