SeniorNet – Enabling Seniors to confidently use digital technology in their everyday lives.

SeniorNet is a community learning network that supports and motivates people to confidently use technology in their everyday lives.

We specialise in improving digital skills for seniors who are keen to keep in touch with the world and who wish to participate in an online economy and all the benefits it offers.

Join in the fun at SeniorNet and learn how using digital skills can enhance your everyday life. Find out more about smart phones, accessing government services, buying and selling online and communicating with friends and family. During lockdowns you can join our virtual learning platform – SeniorHangouts – without leaving your arm chair, your village, or your bubble. When we can meet face to face we provide small, friendly, and stress-free classes, where you will gain the necessary skills and confidence you need to get the most out of the digital economy. No need to be afraid of technology and no question is a silly question at SeniorNet.

During lockdown periods, our Learning Centres may suspend physical classes but may be offering online courses instead. Please visit the website of the Learning Centre near you to find out what is on offer.
