This report addresses three topics of interest to the City of Whittlesea for developing support programs for older adults - aspirations of older adults to adopt technology, barriers preventing older adults from taking up technology, and strategies to support older adults. Considering how the COVID-19 pandemic saw the importance of digital engagement in fostering social inclusion for older adults, our findings show how critical literacy and support groups are to well-being and navigating barriers.
