Welcome to Wellington SeniorNet
SeniorNet is the place where people aged 50+ meet to learn to use and enjoy technology in their everyday lives.
Wellington SeniorNet is part of a New Zealand wide network of SeniorNets.
If you feel you need to keep up with the young people in your life, if you are having problems with your computer, tablet or phone, if you simply want to know more about how technology works and what you can do with it – why not check us out? Read More
SeniorNet Wellington is now closed for the summer holidays. The Executive Committee wishes you a very happy festive season, however you celebrate it. The office will open on 23 January and the Special Interest Groups will also start that day, with the Android SIG.

Apple Mac Users Group (previously Apple Apps)
Wednesday 7th February 12:30 – 2:30pm
Presenter: Bruce Ralph
We have changed the Apple Apps name to Apple Mac Users Group and also changed the workshop date to the first Wednesday of each month. Why? Apple Mac meetings are now every two weeks, each with a different start time and format.
This Mac Users Group meeting will be more suitable for those who want a deeper understanding of their Mac or MacBook.
Starting at 12.30pm at Room 11, the format for this meeting will be for a quick 15 minutes Q&A, then 45 minutes with a more technical macOS & Apps presentation. We will have an informal break to get a tea or coffee while we continue to discuss the answers to Q&A and the presentation. Now, until 2.30 pm, there will be time available for attendees to contribute with their own demonstrations.
When: Monday 10:00 – 12:00 pm or 12:30 – 2:30 pm (Except Public holidays)
Where: Anvil House, 1st Floor
Coordinator: Sandra Thorn
Our preference is to see you at Anvil House but we may be able to offer help Tuesday to Friday between the hours of 10am and 2.30pm, possibly at a different location, depending on the availability of tutors.
These options should be discussed with Sandra.
The Help Centre tutors can assist current financial members who are new to technology or wish to improve their skills or are having problems with their portable devices. We offer ‘one on one’ assistance in a cheerful, friendly environment and while we don’t have all the answers we can usually point you in the right direction.
We can help with a number of devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, Apple Macs, iPads and Desktops.
Cost: $10.00 for up to 2 hours tuition (payment in cash please)
