Living Connected is a not-for profit community enterprise providing services for the social well-being of elders helping them to remain independent, connected and engaged through digital inclusion. It is based at the iAccelerate business incubator at the Innovation Campus of the University of Wollongong, NSW. We partner with aged care facilities and local organisations to serve communities from Bulli to Bega to Bundanoon in Southern NSW. Since 2017, Living Connected has helped thousands of Australian elders
