Be Connected

Increasing the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians, empowering everyone to use the internet and everyday technology to thrive in our digital world.

Good Things Foundation builds digital skills in older Australians through our leading Be Connected program.

We provide people over 50 with access to local, free essential digital skills support through the Be Connected program.

We created a network of thousands of community organisations across Australia to help older people in their local community be more confident online. These organisations range from libraries to Men’s Sheds, community centres to retirement villages, and computer clubs to cultural groups.

We support our community partners to deliver the Be Connected program by referring older people wanting to learn, and building their capacity with free resources, training, support, and small grant funding.

The Be Connected program is an Australian Government funded initiative delivered in partnership with our friends at eSafety and the Department of Social Services.
