Creating life-changing opportunities for carers through digital skills

Thu, 31 Mar

Carers NSW and YourLink recently published a new Case Study detailing the initial results of their partnership project, 'Connecting Carers Online.'

With COVID-19 exacerbating social isolation and increasing reliance on online delivery of information and services, Carers NSW – the peak non-government organisation for carers in NSW – wanted to find a way to support carers to build their confidence online, while also addressing financial barriers.

In 2021, Carers NSW partnered with YourLink to create the ‘Connecting Carers Online’ digital project as part of their Carer Gateway service offerings in the Hunter New England, Central Coast and North Coast regions. ‘Connecting Carers Online’ is a digital education project to help carers gain access to smart devices and learn the essential basics of online skills in order to use them with confidence.
