About Getting Started Computer Training

As part of our fight against digital exclusion, Age Action's Getting Started Computer Training programme delivers free training on computers, tablets and smartphones to people over the age of 55.

Since 2006 Age Action has trained more than 32,000 older people in 14 counties with the assistance of thousands of volunteer tutors.

The training takes place in small classes groups and runs in libraries, community centres, schools, colleges, family resource centres, corporate offices, and housing complexes for older people.

Funding has come from a variety of sources such as government grants, corporate donations and grants, public donations, charitable foundations and Dublin City Council.
