We set up the Welcome Online (Welkom Online) teaching programme especially for those elderly people who have rarely or never been online. Welcome Online introduces them to the online world in an accessible way. In this way, you help the elderly to learn all the things they can do online and to practise them, so that they can master the basic digital skills they need.
Please note: unfortunately, in order to join Welcome Online you will need to understand and speak Dutch, since the Welcome Online program environment is Dutch only. Do you have suggestions or ideas, please let us know via .
If you are also a Dutch speaker, you can continue reading below or on the Dutch web page on how to apply and prepare.
