The Deputy Minister for Regeneration, Leighton Andrews, has this week announced a new initiative to tackle the digital divide in Wales.
The Communities 2.0 programme, worth nearly £20 million, will focus on digital inclusion in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Wales and will work closely with community groups, local charities and social enterprises in order to encourage them to use new technologies.
The initiative, which will draw on European Development Fund money, will follow on from the acclaimed Communities @ One programme, launched in 2006. The funding will also support the creation of a Digital Inclusion Unit which will co-ordinate programme policies and activities.
