eCymru, a housing portal created through a collaborative effort between various partners and tenants, officially launched its platform in March and we’re pleased to announce that you can now sign up as a Valleys to Coast tenant. eCymru is designed to be the bridge to events, engagement, and e-learning for tenants, with the goal of helping them live happier and healthier lives.

COVID-19 sparked a collaboration across Wales to bring tenants a new digital experience. eCymru has been created and powered by the knowledge, skills, and experiences of individuals from across Wales, to ensure the platform meets the diverse needs of the communities it serves and make it user friendly for learners.

The platform has tested and developed by hosting trial events such as successful webinars from Digital Communities Wales, covering topics such as shopping safely and saving money, digital health and wellbeing, and a live performance by the Barry Male Voice Choir.

eCymru has also partnered with The Open University to offer a range of free online courses in arts and crafts, education, fitness, and health.

The long-term aim of the eCymru project is to foster collaboration and improve tenant wellbeing. The project team invites all Registered Social Landlords in Wales to join them in their effort to raise awareness of online events and courses and work towards a brighter future for tenants.
