Hi Digital programme is aimed at bridging the worsening digital divide being experienced by older people in Ireland.
Active Retirement Ireland is proud to support this transformational project that will empower older people to use the internet and computers in their daily lives.
Our aim is to reach older people and improve digital literacy by partnering with Vodafone Ireland Foundation and ALONE to deliver a national programme to increase digital literacy.
