The Aviva Community Fund
TLG has entered The Aviva Community Fund with our project entitled Digital Technology& Communication -Being Connected.
We need your help to get enough votes so we can run a specific digtial and computer literacy program which will support senior members of the community and those who live in supportive housing.
The Literacy Group (TLG) has recognized that seniors in our community & those in supportive living are in need of targeted and specific digital and computer literacy training in order for them to thrive in the modern world.
As a result (TLG) would like to develop and deliver a training that is accessible using different types of technology software to facilitate ease of learning for those who may have visual, physical limitations or other disabilities and are in care facilities.
The benefits of this training include:
* Reducing isolation and loneliness
* Increased ability to read about community events
* Increased ability to research information on health and other issues or areas of interest
* Keep clients minds active and engaged
* Increased communication and social skills
* Increased ability to manage social media, understanding all the benefits and the dangers

Congratulations to Don Proper!
For the first time in TLG history, one of our students has completed ALL level 1 Milestones, including the Culminating Task. Milestones are the assessments TLG uses to monitor the progress of our students.
Group Facilitator, Julie Sigrist says “Don has been one the hardest working students I have ever had, it’s been such a pleasure to see him progress to where he is now.”
Don has now left TLG, but plans to continue his independent learning and give back to TLG via volunteering.
