NEWID is a programme of digital skills development and support for the third sector in Wales. Newid is co-ordinated by WCVA, Wales Co-operative Centre and ProMo-Cymru, and developed in consultation with the voluntary sector to ensure maximum impact. Funded by Welsh Government and supported by the Centre for Digital Public Services, this first phase of Newid is a pilot project running until Summer 2022.
The COVID pandemic has transformed everyone’s relationship with ‘digital’, whether that is how you interact with colleagues or deliver services. With ‘digital’ having a wide-ranging role within the work we undertake, it is vital that third sector organisations in Wales have access to information and support to help make judgements around how digital can complement the range of activities being undertaken.
The third sector in Wales is made up of more than 49,000 diverse organisations, charities, social enterprises and community groups. We are hoping to capture information from more than 500 organisations across Wales to learn more about your relationship with technology. This information will enable us at NEWID to develop approaches that fulfil the needs of the third sector.
This is the first time that a digital baseline assessment has been undertaken in Wales.
Newid are appealing to those that work in the third sector in Wales to undertake two actions:
- Fill out the survey (on-behalf of the organisation you work for)
- Share the link to the survey to a third sector contact that works for another organisation.
