Leep's CEO Cecily Michaels visited the UK in late 2016 to speak about Leep at the 'Digital Evolution: Social Revolution Conference'. This was such a fabulous opportunity for Cecily to meet with some of the most brilliant digital inclusion initiatives in the UK. For Cecily there is stark contrast between the well meaning
but unavoidably ad hoc approaches we have in Australia with Tech Savvy Seniors, Broadband for Seniors, and GoDigi compared to the holistic approach Good Things Foundation have taken with significant government funding in the UK.
Whilst welcoming Malcolm Turnbull’s commitment of $50 million to put seniors online over 4 years, Cecily says we still have a long way to go in Australia. Much still needs to be done.
