Fortitude Valley Launch of Net Kiosk

Marya from Senator Claire Moore's office at the launch of the Broadband Kiosk.

The Fortitude Valley initiative is part of a wider Australian Government initiative 'Making Ends Meet - Plan for Older Australians, People with Disabilities and Carers' and commits $15 million over three years to create approximately 2,000 senior internet kiosks.

Only one in five Australians over the age of 65 years currently use the internet. The initiative responds to the needs of seniors wishing to be trained in the use of the internet to stay in contact with family and friends.

The initiative:

•provides seniors with free access to computers and broadband internet
•supports seniors to gain confidence to use new technology by providing free online training and individual and workshop training
•addresses the issue of seniors feeling isolated and 'left behind' in a technological age and
•builds community participation and social inclusion among seniors.

If your organisation would like to apply to open a kiosk or for more information, contact the Broadband for Seniors hotline on 1300 795 897 or go to the Broadband for Seniors Website
