Get Online Week

19 – 25 October 2020

It’s Get Online Week from 19 – 25 October 2020 and we’re committed to helping you improve your digital literacy skills and building your confidence to operate online.

Whether you need help using your smartphone or tablet, looking after your health online, or safely shopping online, there is a world of wonderful opportunities at your fingertips.

We’ve partnered with Be Connected, an initiative by the Australian Government, to help you build online skills and make the most out of the internet.

Now's the time to get online

Get Online Week runs from 19 – 25 October 2020 and is an international digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation.

It is a week-long annual celebration that sees thousands of events take place each year giving everyone the chance to find the support they need to improve their digital skills. Last year, more than 1000 events were held across Australia helping people get more out of life online.

This year, IRT is hosting a range of events in our residential aged care centres and retirement villages to support our residents, customers and family members to ‘get online.’

The events include online meetings, training sessions, live stream videos, online trivia games, and demonstrations on how to make the most of our new app, IRT Connect.
