Libraries Digital Communities Award

Pictured left to right are: Jonathan Levy from Class Networks, Allyson Roberts, Tracy Jones and Donna Hardman from Blaenau Gwent Libraries, Sian Lloyd BBC Presenter and Matt Lloyd from Digital Communities Wales.

Blaenau Gwent Libraries Service has recently been commended for its very popular digital inclusion services which are delivered across all six libraries throughout Blaenau Gwent.

The service was nominated for the Digital Inclusion Award at the annual Third Sector Awards Cymru, organised by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action, which took place in St David’s Hotel, Cardiff on Thursday 16th February.  Out of twenty five entrants from all over Wales, Blaenau Gwent Libraries Service was proud to receive the runner up award.

Supported by Class Networks, the annual Third Sector Awards Cymru honours the hard work and inspirational achievements of the third sector in Wales.

Matthew Lloyd, Senior Coordinator for Digital Communities Wales and judge for the Digital Inclusion Award, said: “Digital Communities Wales is delighted to sponsor the new Digital Inclusion Award this year. We received over 25 excellent entries from across Wales, with an impressive variety of digital inclusion engagement projects.   We would like to thank and congratulate all entrants that are helping to make a positive difference to the lives of people in Wales through their digital inclusion work."

Tracy Jones, Library Services Manager for Aneurin Leisure added; “The service is extremely proud to be awarded runner-up, particularly as the calibre of the other entrants was at such a high level.  It has given us recognition for our contribution to tackling the digital divide in Blaenau Gwent by working with a range of partners and volunteers to provide vital IT support.”
