Vision Australia wants you to be connected!

20 January 2020

Vision Australia has partnered with the Australian Government’s Be Connected program to run an exciting new program for our 50 plus year-old clients who are blind or have low vision.

‘Be Connected’ is aimed at increasing the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians to use the internet and everyday technology to thrive in our digital world.

Vision Australia has taken this one step further by designing a learning program which uses the GuideConnect software specifically created for people who are blind or have low vision.

GuideConnect software is a personal talking digital assistant, bringing people closer to family and friends, helping with work and home admin and opening up a whole new world of entertainment and fun.

Our learning course will be delivered by Vision Australia’s expert team of digital mentors, who will guide clients through the course in a fun, supported and inclusive way.

Starting in February, the digital mentors will deliver the Be Connected program to 500 Vision Australia clients through-out 2020 at their nearest Vision Australia location.

Program participants will build their capacity and use technology to work through a library of learning modules, including absolute basics, getting online safely, connecting with others and so much more!

Better yet, because this is a funded program there is no cost to you. So join in on the fun and learning by contacting Vision Australia on 1300 84 74 66 or  email Adelina Holloway on
