Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA)


ASCCA is the umbrella organisation of which Computer Pals for Seniors Northern Beaches is a member.

ASCCA is the national peak body for seniors and technology.

Our mission is to assist clubs to educate seniors in using computer technology to enrich their lives and make them more self-reliant.

We bridge the generation gap and assist seniors to benefit the community through their collective experience and knowledge.

ASCCA was formed on 7 August 1998 and became an incorporated association on 14 August 1998. It became a not for profit company limited by guarantee on 21 August 2001

ASCCA FlyerASCCA supports and encourages seniors to take advantage of modern information technology to meet their individual needs and to provide further challenges. To become computer literate at their own pace, in a friendly non-threatening environment and to have fun whilst doing so.

ASCCA has become a catalyst to enthuse, encourage, empower and assist seniors to explore computer technology.

In the 21st century, information technology includes not just computers, but also mobile phones, webcams, iPads and many other emerging technologies.

ASCCA undertakes projects to support IT for Seniors, and organises seminars, training sessions for the mature aged and club volunteers, workshops and similar activities.

In addition, there is an annual two day conference, open to all seniors, where many areas of information technology, communications issues of interest to seniors are covered.

ASCCA's main objectives are to:

  • Assist communities establish computer clubs for seniors wherever a need exists.

  • Support and assist existing clubs grow and remain viable.

  • Provide training for club trainers and potential trainers.

  • Develop training resources for use by computer clubs.

  • Provide awareness about Cyber Security.

  • Broaden the vision and understanding of available technology and what is possible.
