How to get 2018 started with Digital Communities Wales

4th January 2018

A new year brings new opportunities and for Digital Communities Wales that means working with organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors to inspire people to get online and do more with computers, mobile devices and the internet. Our work is continually evolving and this year we will be looking to support health literacy and reach out to people within health and social care settings.

We are always keen to work with partners and there are a number of ways we can do this in 2018…

Show Your Commitment:
You can sign the Digital Inclusion Charter for Wales, which is now supported by more than 250 organisations. The Charter is a commitment to promote basic digital skills and help people get online. Watch our video to see how others have got on board and implemented the Charter in their day-to-day work.

Join Safer Internet Day:
Safer Internet Day is held on Tuesday 6th February with the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. Schoolchildren who have become Digital Heroes through our work are likely to focus on improving internet safety for themselves and others.

Sign up to Staff/Volunteer Training:
Our training team will be working direct with members of staff and volunteers of organisations once again. Take a look at the training section of our website to find out more about the range of courses we offer and book on here – http://digitalcommunitieswales.eventbrite.com/

Digital Volunteering:
Why not join the number of digital volunteers in Wales in 2018? People use their own time and skills to help others get online in communities around Wales. You can receive training, and be placed with an organisation, to help you get the most out of your volunteering experience. Our video shows the different ways in which people have become digital volunteers. You can also find more information on our website. Maybe your organisation would like to take on some digital volunteers.

We look forward to working with you this year as we continue to support digital inclusion across Wales.
