infoengine and Dewis 

infoengine is an online directory of third sector services in Wales. It is provided and supported by Third Sector Support Wales, a partnership of County Voluntary Councils and the Wales Council for Voluntary Action. It has over 4,000 services offered by voluntary organisations and community groups. This number increases daily.

Dewis Cymru is a website providing information about well-being in Wales. The website is developed by Data Cymru on behalf of the 22 local authorities in Wales. It contains a resource directory of over 6,000 local and national organisations and services including local authority services, community groups, voluntary organisations and businesses.

Working together

In a new partnership between the two sites, infoengine's comprehensive database of third sector services has now merged with the Dewis directory, making it a unique source of information for use across Wales.

It also includes a set of Information Pages designed to help people think about 'what matters' to them, and helps them find local, practical support.

This development is a real example of practical collaboration between the third sector and the public sector in Wales and ensures that information is readily available to both the public and to those who offer advice and support to the public across Wales.

Please visit the infoengine website to try out the enhanced service.
