Welcome to Community Archives Wales
Digital community archives are collections of material in private hands that have been digitised and interpreted by community groups, enabling the communities to present their own history in their own words.
CAW began as a pilot project to enable eleven groups within Communities First areas throughout Wales to create their own digital archives and share them on the CAW website. Since then, other groups have contributed to the project and the number of items displayed on the website continues to grow. If you are interested in the project and would perhaps like to digitise your own community archive, we would very much like to hear from you.
