With 2.5 million Australians not online, the digital divide is leaving too many behind. Now, older Aussies can access help for free.
In a new era of working from home and lockdown disruption, digital skills have become as essential as the five basic food groups.
But with 2.5 million Australians – 10 per cent of the population – not online, according to the Australian Digital Inclusion Index, too many people are being left behind.
To help close the digital divide, Good Things Foundation national director Jess Wilson said a campaign was underway to encourage Australians aged 50 and over to enrol in the Be Connected program.
