  • I’m here to tell you what Communities 2.0 is and what we are doing in relation to Community Radio
  • Name Organisation Brief overview of your job role? My role is to work within the communities of RCT/Caerphilly to develop collaborations and initiatives that will digitally include people who could most benefit from using technology in the best ways to get at the hard to reach. Tell us how you relax? Joke
  • Stress this is a digital inclusion programme and has a remit to get many in Wales using technology to improve their lives 2.0 supports community organisations and social enterprises 5 partners: Led by Wales Co-operative Centre University of Glamorgan through GEECS (George Ewart Edward Centre for Storytelling) PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association for Voluntary Services) Novas Scarman Carmarthenshire County Council
  • More information in your packs
  • Digital inclusion is a huge field – basic IT, recycling, media production
  • So what are we doing with CR? Broad discussions with CR stations in eligible areas As a digital inclusion project we wanted to look at how we can bring more numbers through a CR to mutually benefit each other Decision by the 2.0 panel has been to trial some best practice models which look something like through 3 pilots in North Wales, South East Wales and South West Wales
  • Explain the side Findings of the pilots will be known in 18 months to find out whether this is a good way of digitally including people effectively which benefits both the CR and DI You can still contact us to have a look at how 2.0 can support your organisation if you are eligble
  • Hopefully we will find many people through CR and many others routes who will not only be digitally included but also look like this lady! Thank you!
