As the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted, digital engagement is crucial for fostering social inclusion forolder adults, however, perceived risks are one of the main reasons many older adults do not engage with ICT and the digital economy. In addressing such concerns about better equipping older Australians to engage with the digital economy, our report explains the perceived risks that affect older adults the most and outlines co-designed strategies that respond to their lived experiences of ICT – connecting practices with perceptions.
