Digital Understanding For Old Blokes: providing basic computer training
This grant will be used to purchase computers, internet connection and a printer for the Digital Understanding For Old Blokes program that aims to provide basic computer training to members of the Ipswich Men's Shed.
The Ipswich Men's Shed Inc. has been operational since Jan 2013 and is a member of the Australian Men's Shed Association.
The shed aims to give retired men of the Ipswich community a place to meet and exchange skills and experience, or just to have contact with other men in a safe and supportive environment. Activities include woodwork, wood turning, metal machining, welding and fitting, as well as growing vegetables and fruit.
