Exploiting Digital Technology

Supporting you to make the most of digital opportunities in your community or business.


If you have an innovative idea for accessing services, staying connected or developing your business through the use of digital technology, then come and talk to us. Or, feel free to set us a challenge! We would welcome the chance to support you to overcome a digital challenge, or a challenge that may be solved with a digital solution.


 Exploiting Digital Technology


Please get in touch to discuss your ideas!


Here are some of the projects we are supporting under this theme:


Making the Most of the Archives


Exploring the best ways of providing public access to historical archives, looking at a range of online options and overcoming concerns such as copyright, accessibility, and cost.

Digital Community Venues


A grant was awarded to Newydd Housing Association to piloting 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. The scheme is set to launch in early 2019.

Vale Digital Skills


With recognition that the Vale is at a medium level of digital exclusion and with more services becoming digital by default, there is a need to upskill Vale residents in some of the key aspects of social media and other digital platforms. Training courses are due to run through 2019.
