About ://digital dunoon

Digital Dunoon is a regeneration initiative that aims to improve the digital footprint of the Dunoon area by building skills and capacity at a local level.
The initiative is led by the Dunoon Area Alliance and supported by Dunoon Presents, Scotland’s Towns Partnership, Argyll and Bute Council and Tacit Tacit.
The project responds to research started in 2016 during the 'Think Dunoon' Charrette. This work looked at how the social, creative and enterprise capital in our community could be used to support and sustain local regeneration.

The research identified the need for further support in the use of digital tools, i.e. a website, social media and digital learning infrastructure. The aim being to create a more holistic digital resource for the town that addresses the needs of our community. This project is being developed in phases as funding becomes available.
