Digital Communities Wales

Digital Communities Wales tackles digital exclusion by helping organisations that are working with people who could benefit from having basic digital skills.

Digital Communities Wales (DCW) works across the whole of Wales with any organisation supporting people who would benefit from getting online. It is a Welsh Government project which is delivered by the Wales Co-operative Centre.

Support is free and covers the following areas:

An initial assessment of your organisation to help you develop and deliver digital inclusion activities.

Training for staff and volunteers to them help others get online and use the internet effectively and safely.

Short-term loans of digital equipment including tablets, laptops and Fitbits, so you can deliver digital activities.

Help to develop a digital volunteering programme, match organisations with digital volunteers and train existing volunteers.

The Digital Inclusion Charter can show your organisation’s commitment to alleviating digital exclusion.

Any organisation is welcome to join our network of local Get Online partnerships which have been developed with stakeholders across Wales.  We also build partnerships between organisations where working together can progress digital inclusion aims.
