About Us

A South Pennines Digital Collective

Digital Skills AND Community Experience

We’re a collective of digital folk from across the South Pennines passionate about promoting our brilliant people and places. Importantly, we’ve all had direct experience of working with communities and community groups in a variety of weird and wonderful ways.

So think Web Developers, User Experience experts, Digital Trainers, Bid Writers and Digital Social Innovators that can talk your language!

South Pennines Digital Towns is a social enterprise and is currently in the application process to become a CIC.
