BROADBAND FOR SENIORS PROGRAM


Broadband for Seniors logoThe Port Fairy Men's Shed (PFMS) was selected to host a Broadband for Seniors (BFS) Internet Kiosk to deliver basic training and increase the skills of older Australians in using computers and the Internet.

The aim of the BFS program is to get seniors in our community better connected, enabling them to discover a whole new social experience on the Internet and to help them stay in touch online with family and friends, along with offering a wealth of information available online.

The program is funded by the Australian Government and supported by consortium partners, NEC, the Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association, University of the Third Age (U3A Online) and Adult Learning Australia.

Two NEC computers and have been connected to the Internet at the Port Fairy Men's Shed (located on the Port Fairy Showgrounds -121 Hamilton-Port Fairy Rd).  Tuition for senior members of the community is conducted upon request at the BFS Kiosk.  Tuition is provided by members of the Port Fairy Men's Shed and other tutors who have skills in using computers.

The BFS program is available to all seniors (generally persons 50 years and over) living in the Port Fairy and surrounding regions and is not just limited to Men's Shed members.
