Leep has been bringing digital inclusion to disadvantaged communities for over 18 years. Working with a network of partners, Leep create and run digital literacy programs for the 1 in 5 Australians who are not online. Leep work closely with local communities and the organisations that support them, to ensure the relevancy and effectiveness of programs.
Leep believe the possibilities that modern technology provides should be available to everyone. Through education and encouragement, Leep help older people, people with disabilities and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to use technology everyday, opening the door to a larger world.
The Leep in Network is a movement for digital inclusion and people with disability in Western Sydney.
In partnership with the UK’s Good Things Foundation, Leep will create an Australian-first network of disability friendly organisations, councils, clubs and businesses in Western Sydney, connected to, and inspired by each other through a combination of online tools and face-to-face engagement.
Leep in Network aims to support all people with disability in New South Wales to develop the basic digital skills needed to use and benefit from the internet, and participate in our digital society and economy.
If you offer, or would like to offer, digital skills programs in Western Sydney, please sign up to be listed on the Leep In Network today!
