Seniors internet workshop success

Helping Hand and Telstra have been working in partnership to deliver two days of Introduction to the Internet workshops for seniors.

Helping Hand and Telstra have been working in partnership to deliver two days of Introduction to the Internet workshops for seniors. The workshops, held on 4th and 5th July 2012, were attended by nearly 100 people and generated great feedback and media coverage on TV and radio. A very big thank you goes to all the volunteers who were available to assist on the day. Some feedback from participants included:

“It was great learning not to be afraid of technology”
“The workshop was excellent for people of my age (80 years old)”
“It was so informative—the hands-on experience was excellent, as was the help available”
“Brilliant—the workshops open doors and minds for people”

Helping Hand is currently discussing a longer term partnership with Telstra.
