Push to help elderly with computer use

From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 31 December 2020

Those who are digitally savvy are being urged to take some time this summer to help elderly relatives or neighbours who may find using a computer daunting. In the 2019 Budget, $600,000 was given to programmes such as Pacific Senior Connect and Better Digital Futures. The Government investment has led to more than 250 people participating in programmes to deliver computer training and skills in the past year. It wants everyone to do their part to make sure seniors stay connected. Political reporter Charlie Dreaver has this report.
