Last week, LEAD Connect hosted a digital literacy workshop at the Glenwood Community Centre for a group of wonder women. The aim of the workshop was to raise awareness about common digital scams and how to protect from falling victim.
The group was involved in an interactive information sharing and discussion about online phishing scams, investment scams, and other forms of fraud. The session included tips on identifying and reporting scams, as well as protecting personal information.
It was gratifying to receive comments like – “I am now feeling more confident in navigating the digital world safely”.
We would also like to express our gratitude to Amar Singh, for his support for this session and to Good Things Foundation Australia for trusting us to continue supporting elderly community members with digital literacy.

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
