A local computer club for seniors has received $30,000 from the NSW Government to upgrade its old computers and mobile technology.
The Campbelltown Senior Cyber Seekers works on the basis of supporting each other through seniors teaching seniors how to navigate an increasingly digital world.
Member for Campbelltown Greg Warren MP said that in a world where technology continues to develop incredibly quickly, such groups are essential.
“I am so glad to be supporting them through the Local Small Commitments Allocation Program,” he said.
“I would encourage any seniors or elderly residents throughout Campbelltown who want to brush up on their digital literacy to get involved and contact the Campbelltown Senior Cyber Seekers.”
The Local Small Commitments Allocation Program provides for local communities through $400,000 in benefits to each of the 93 NSW electorates. It will consist of over 600 small community projects, ranging from capital works, services and programs, events, supplies and equipment, charitable donations, playground and park upgrades.
The Campbelltown Senior Cyber Seekers provides regular meetings, training activities and gatherings to encourage an atmosphere of fellowship and enjoyment whilst learning computer and communication skills.
Mr Warren adds, “This fantastic organisation runs three, hour-long classes a day from Monday to Thursday. They are always easy to get in touch with either by phone on 046280484 or by email at email@example.com.”
