SeniorNet was first established in Wellington in 1992 with support from Telecom New Zealand. This was not only the first learning centre in New Zealand, but also the first to be set up outside North America. In 1993 a second centre was established in Nelson. SeniorNet now has 100 Learning Centres all over New Zealand. Local groups are self-sufficient, with committees and members securing premises, funding, equipment and sponsorship.
You can find out more on individual groups via the SeniorNet NZ site.
The organisation has several sponsors who provide direct or indirect support to the organisation and its members.
SeniorNet is a global organisation, though each country operates independently.
