As part of our fight against digital exclusion, Age Action's Getting Started Computer Training programme delivers one-to-one training on computers, tablets and smartphones to people over the age of 55 all over Ireland.
Since 2006 Age Action has trained over 27,000 older people in 12 counties with the assistance of thousands of volunteer tutors. The training takes place in small classes groups and runs in libraries, community centres, family resource centres, corporate offices, and housing complexes for older people.
Funding has come from a variety of sources such as government grants, private corporations, charitable foundations and Dublin City Council.
The Getting Started Computer Training programme has received government funding since 2009 under the Department of Communication, Energy and Natural Resources BenefIT scheme for digital inclusion.
Age Action runs classes in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow, Louth, Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Leitrim, Sligo, Cork and Waterford.
Our partners will run classes in Dublin, Wicklow, Meath, Westmeath, Clare, Kildare, Wexford, Galway, Kerry and Cork.
