‘Get Online Week’ was held from 19 to 25 October 2020 to promote the digital literacy of senior Australians and reach new people in the community. Get Online Week is an international digital inclusion campaign organised by ‘The Good Things Foundation’.

Last year, over 1,000 events were held across Australia during Get Online Week, helping people with limited digital skills get more out of life online. 2.5 million people in Australia do not have the basic digital skills they need to thrive in today’s computer driven world. On Sunday 25 October 2020, a ‘Get Online Week’ event was sponsored by The Good Things Foundation and organised by Cultural Diversity Network Inc (CDNI) and Filipino Sports Arts & Recreational Club (FILSPARC).

It was held at Glenwood Park Community Hub and drew together course participants, tutors, and interested people from the migrant community. Dr Sabrin Farooqui, President of CDNI, and Ms Carol Israel, founding member of FILSPARC jointly hosted the function at Glenwood Park. Sabrin said ‘we wanted to hear feedback from our participants as we have already completed some sessions. We were very pleased to learn that through this program we have helped some people achieve a sense of belonging in Australia for the first time.

The overwhelming feedback is entirely positive and we are looking forward to continuing this program if possible ’. Ms Carol Israel who is also a Councillor at Blacktown Council said that FILSPARC sees helping people with limited digital skills get more out of life online as the primary benefit for course participants and said new enquiries are very welcome. Speakers at the event included Ms Carol Israel and Johnjohn Lee Cundangan from FILSPARC, Mr Mustafa Abdulla, and Ms Homera Zaman & Mr Lutfur Rahman who are both participants of the digital literacy program. Speakers from CDNI included the president Dr Sabrin Farooqui, Ms Linda Sun, vice president, and Ms Sadia Tabassum treasurer. Both Sabin and Carol said that further enquiries are welcome – go to or
