Bringing Seniors back into the work force and beyondKCDC

The information below was sent from Kāpiti Coast District Council (by the Senior Advisor Business & Investment Facilitation)

An independent study shows there is growing need for older people to re-join/remain in the workforce. Kāpiti Coast Council’s Economic Development team is looking at the possibility – and willingness – of older people to return to the work force.

Council has negotiated an opportunity for work at a government agency contact centre in Paraparaumu. There is no pre-requisite for qualifications neither there is an age limit. To learn more and visit to the site to get a taste of the role and the environment planned on the 29th May at 11:00 Please contact us at, if this pilot is of interest.

SeniorNet Kapiti, are finding ways we can be of assistance to the community

There are many areas where we can partner with other organisations to be of service to the community, and we are keen to help out further in that area.

SeniorNet Kapiti has ongoing community support from Paraparaumu Library and Westpac (one of our sponsors). In particular, we are looking at various technology items that we can bring along to the Learning Centre, and gain insight on how best to introduce items into our monthly sessions. Recently you may have attended the ChatGPT workshop, those who attended were given an insight into Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a bit of fun along the way.

Members Meeting – late June

SeniorNet Kapiti are in the process of planning a mid-winter members meeting. This will be in late June and we will let you know the date and time once planning is in its final stages. This meeting will mix SeniorNet’s established style of presentation with a nice warm lunch and Q&A.

Happy Learning to Everyone!

Please Support our Sponsors

Please don’t forget to support our National sponsors – they’re important to SeniorNet and help us at the local level in many ways, including offering discounts to our members.

Always show your membership card and ask if there’s a discount for SeniorNet members – you might be rather surprised!

The best example is Noel Leeming where the SeniorNet discount extends well beyond computers to everything in their store but please be insistent that they scan your barcode before they give you a price!

Suzuki has recently reconfirmed their offer to our members of free on-road costs on new vehicles so it always pays to ask.

There are more details about the individual sponsorships on the Federation’s website here
