Tech Savvy Seniors Queensland

The Tech Savvy Seniors Queensland Program was an ongoing partnership between the Queensland Government (led by State Library of Queensland) and Telstra.

This partnership provided older people across Queensland with the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence to use technology for socialising, accessing important services or conducting personal business.

Telstra’s Tech Savvy Seniors program was designed to support older people to get connected, and participate in the ever-increasing online world, with the objective of increasing digital inclusion amongst the ageing and helping to reduce social isolation.

The Tech Savvy Seniors Queensland program delivered digital technology training to seniors through selected public library services and Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs) across Queensland between 2016 and 2021.

During this time over 35,000 seniors embraced digital technology by participating in over 7,000 free training sessions delivered through public libraries and IKCs across Queensland.
