Catalyst Foundation is running Digital Skills workshops for LGBTIQA+ community members who would like to build confidence using phones / laptops / ipads, or learn a specific skill. Workshops are held at various locations, and online. We also offer these to people within the Aged Care sector who are working with LGBTIQA+ people and would like to attend to boost their own knowledge.

What’s a device?
A device is a term that refers to technology that is usually hand-held, and acts like a computer. Our devices are what is known as ‘tablets’, which are bigger than phones, but smaller than laptop computers.
What can I use a device for?
They can be used for video-calling friends and family, attending online events, reading books, listening to audio books/podcasts/the radio, watching movies, TV & theatre, searching for information that interests you, receiving & sending emails, visiting virtual museums, ordering take-away…..and just about anything.
