Josephine Teo on Seniors Go Digital programme

10:53 Min

More than 190,000 seniors have been engaged and trained under the Seniors Go Digital programme since the SG Digital Office was set up in June 2020. The programme focuses on enabling seniors to use digital tools in daily life, such as using a smartphone to access Government services like SingPass and health services, as well as to communicate and transact online. The results have been “encouraging”, said Communications and Information Minister Josephine Teo in Parliament on Tuesday (Oct 4). She said a 2021 survey found that about nine in 10 seniors continued to apply the digital skills they had learned a month after they had been trained. Targeted programmes have also been implemented to strengthen seniors’ ability to manage cyber threats such as scams.
