What is Be Connected?
Be Connected is an Australia wide initiative empowering all Australians to thrive in a digital world.
We have online learning resources as well as a Network of community partners - the Be Connected Network - who offer support so you can develop your digital skills and confidence.
Find a local place for friendly help and advice, or join the Network to help others.
Strength training helps you regain and maintain muscle strength, as well as improve balance, gait, flexibility, bone density and coordination. It can also reduce the risk of falls while increasing your confidence and wellbeing.

existing fitness level. Your progress is regularly monitored throughout the program.
