Our caring hands are pleased to invite you to a Cyber Safety Workshop to keep you safe online. 

Hosted during “Get Online Week” this presentation is ideal for anyone aged over 60 who wants to be an online warrior in the fight against online scams.  

Scammers are getting more creative in their methods, and it is easy to fall prey to them, so now is an ideal time to educate yourself and brush up on your IT skills.   

The workshop also includes a special break out session for Southcare customers wanting to learn more about the Southcare Connect app and tips and tricks on how to use it as part of their in-home care with Southcare.
