Marlborough Sounds SeniorNet

SeniorNet is a community training network that supports and motivates people to enjoy and use technology in their everyday lives.

SeniorNet brings older adults and technology together in a friendly, fun and stress-free way. It is for people who’d like to learn more about technology and what it can do for them. Small, well organised classes, with volunteer tutors, about the same age as their students, run courses ranging from the very Beginner Courses up to the more advanced Courses in Word Processing, Photoshop Elements, Excel etc.

Join in the fun and learn how to do everything from simple word-processing to sending emails, using graphics, and generally making the most of your Computer. In small, friendly and stress-free classes, you’ll gain the skills and confidence you need to get the most out of information technology.
