Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association
Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA) is the national peak body for seniors and technology. ASCCA is represented in every state and territory of Australia and ASCCA associated clubs are a great way to learn new skills or share your computer skills through clubs and groups. If you are interested in learning more about computers or have a wealth of information to volunteer, visit ASCCA.

Broadband for Seniors
Broadband for Seniors aims to increase the confidence and skills of older Australians in using computers and the internet, helping to build their community participation and social inclusion. Under Broadband for Seniors the Australian Government intends to engage a single service delivery organisation to deliver the program nationally by establishing around 2,000 internet kiosks for seniors in community organisations across Australia.

WorkVentures believes everyone deserves to have access to computers and training regardless of their financial situation. Providing computers for as little as $250 to holders of a current Centre Link Health Care Card, Aged Pension Card, Disability Card or some other form of documentation relating to low-income or disadvantage. Or to organizations that are non-profit organization, educational institutions, church, charity or community groups, WorkVentures is making a real difference.
