A new project to help multilingual communities improve their digital skills has started on the far north coast. BR4R is the project sponsor and is linking with the Local Health District, TAFE and other members of the multi-cultural health network to help refugees and asylum-seekers settling in the area, feel more confident using computers and the internet.

What We’re Doing:

We are inviting people from diverse backgrounds to share their experiences with digital skills in focus groups and workshops. These sessions will invite refugee and migrant households to tell us what they want to learn about computers and the internet.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to provide practical help to community members who have trouble using computers or getting online. By learning about everyone’s needs, we can work together to make sure everyone can use digital technology.

How to Get Involved:

We are looking for people who:

  • Don’t speak English as their first language.
  • Need help with digital skills or getting online.
  • Are recent migrants, refugees, established migrant groups, or long-term residents who aren’t on temporary visas.

If you’re interested or know someone who would benefit, please contact the project coordinator at email or call Tuesday to Thursday at 0483 221 161.
