Digital Skills for Living Project to improve basic IT skills for people with lived experience

Mental Health Coordinating Council has launched a new project to enhance digital skills among consumers accessing the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative and Community Living Supports programs.

The Digital Skills for Living Project is in response to increasing digital service delivery and the need to eliminate barriers to access services.

The training aims to meet the needs for HASI and CLS consumers wanting to improve their basic IT skills. Consumers will be shown a range of digital techniques including:

  • using Zoom and other video conferencing platforms
  • emailing
  • internet searching
  • filling out online forms
  • QR codes
  • social media
  • the importance of passwords
  • online security and keeping safe.

MHCC will partner with an IT expert to deliver the program and work with community managed organisations to rollout the training. CMO involvement is critical to the success of the project.

Project Working Group

A Project Working Group is being established to provide input into the delivery of the new Digital Skills for Living Project. It will also act as a clearing house for any emerging issues.

The group will meet regularly as required throughout the project.

If you have lived experience or work for a CMO and are interested in being considered for the Project Working Group, please contact our Learning and Development Manager, Sally Dumbrell before 16 July 2021.

If you are interested in attending this training, please email info@mhcc.org.au or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, for updates.
