Advocating for community digital inclusion in the upper mountains

We have been running for ten years, and we serve all the small communities at the top of the mountains, from Medlow Bath to Mt. Irvine. 
We happily accept students from further afield too. 

We are a national Be Connected network partner. This service is overseen by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.  

Individual classes for over-50s are delivered 1-to-1 and YOUR FIRST FOUR one-hour classes are FREE.

For anyone registered for Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) these classes continue free – as a BANC social support initiative. 

Disaster Preparedness  

Learn about mobile phone bushfire alert apps.
We recommend (and explain how to use) the Hazards Near Me NSW app, which is available online for both Apple and Android smart phones and tablets.   

To help you with planning ahead we also recommend NSW Rural Fire Service’s MyFirePlan online.
