Switched on Seniors
We help seniors get their needs met online using mobile devices such as iPad or iPhone, tablets or smartphones.
Tech help for Seniors by Seniors.

Are you missing out when:

  • You are told you need to go online to get the things you need and you don’t know how to do it - or even know what it means?

  • Your kids have given you an iPad or tablet and you don’t know how to use it?

  • That smartphone you were persuaded to buy just seems to be too smart for you?

  • Your parents (or kids or grandkids) live in another city or country and you’d love to be able to video chat to them on Skype or FaceTime?

  • You have retired and you would like to find something significant, enjoyable and fulfilling to do in your retirement.

Are You a Senior?

Switched on Seniors has been assisting seniors with tech help  since 2012. While we started with iPads and iPhones, we now embrace other smart devices, including Android smartphones and tablets.

If you’re a senior eager to explore or acquire your own smart gadgets in a friendly group environment, reach out to us—everyone is welcome! 

Are Your Parents Seniors?

Switched on Seniors can help your parents and/or grandparents gain the skills and confidence to make better use of their own smart devices to help them access services and connect with friends, family, and the world beyond.

Would you like to volunteer?

Switched on Seniors seeks to guide our seniors in embracing technology.


No tech wizardry required! If you're familiar with iPhones, iPads, or smartphones and enjoy sharing knowledge, join us. Witness our seniors gain confidence while learning and you'll learn lots too!

What is increasingly making older Australians feel alienated from society?

One major factor is the rapid advancement of technology. Many older Australians struggle to keep up with new digital tools and platforms,

Switched on Seniors with its dynamic model of continuous learning, peer guidance, and group interaction can help to overcome this. Participants learn, connect, share information, support each other, and inspire and empower one another

by creating a space where anyone who needs tech help can learn the skills and gain the confidence to use mobile tech devices. This helps them stay connected with friends, family, essential services and the wider world.
