Digital Inclusion Alliance Wales

The Digital Inclusion Alliance Wales (DIAW) is a newly formed, multi-sector group of organisations who are committed to taking joint action to significantly shift the digital inclusion agenda in Wales.

The purpose of the Alliance is to bring together people from across the public, private, third and academic sectors in Wales to coordinate and promote digital inclusion activity across Wales under one national banner.  The group has committed to raising the profile of digital inclusion high on the agenda of all public facing organisations.

Being a member of the Alliance represents an opportunity to participate in and shape the delivery of an innovative initiative that inspires digital inclusion action and works to ensure that everyone in Wales has the opportunity to engage with digital services and the digital world.

The DIAW officially launched on October 15th 2020.  The resources from the event are available below.  Since the launch we have increased our membership and are looking ahead to the impact we can have on the digital inclusion agenda in Wales.

If your organisation has great ideas or experience in improving digital inclusion or just wants to learn what others are doing, why not join with us? We would love to hear from you!
