WE BUILD DIGITAL INCLUSION IN COMMUNITIES EXPERIENCING DISADVANTAGE
Leep’s purpose is to ensure people experiencing disadvantage have the skills to get online confidently and safely thereby reaping the economic and social benefits that technology offers.
Digital literacy isn’t just about technology – it’s a life skill that improves a person’s overall wellbeing. Supporting people to be online is an important task. As a Tech Mate you can make a difference in people’s lives by sharing your knowledge and offering social and digital support to those who would otherwise be isolated.
Leep receives government funding for our programs and Tech Mates is a free service for learners. Our learners can self-enrol, be referred from other organisations such as aged care, health or community services.
Our learners are from all over New South Wales including rural and remote areas. Common learning needs include navigating a device such as a mobile phone or tablet, learning to search for information online, using social media and apps or making video calls.
Leep is the definitive step one takes when one is ready to make a significant change in one’s life for the better.
As the spelling leap was not available, we accepted the ‘magic’ spelling, Leep! NGO stands for Non-Government Organisation and is our domain.
Leep NGO is the sentiment we wish to encourage in the community when embracing technology and getting online.
