Vale Tablet Loan Scheme
A grant was awarded to Newydd Housing Association to pilot the loaning of tablets from community libraries across the rural Vale. The libraries in the rural Vale taking part are Cowbridge, Rhoose, Llantwit Major, Wenvoe & Dinas Powys. The urban libraries taking part, which were separately funded, are Barry and Penarth.
In an increasingly digital age, those who do not have access or the skills to engage with the digital world are at risk of being left behind.
The ‘Vale Tablet Loan Scheme’ was set up to address this by testing how efficient, effective and value for money lending WIFI-enabled tablets through local libraries, coupled with basic digital skills training, is at reducing digital exclusion in the Vale of Glamorgan.
