Te a Cofi Celebrate 2 Years

Last week Te a Cofi, GISDA’s café celebrated opening its doors for two years. To celebrate this here’s a short video about our Social Enterprises.

Thank you very much to all of our volunteers and faithful customers for their support over the last two years.



Following the Welsh Government’s release of the Trans*Form Cymru charter GISDA is proud to launch a new logo to promote young people’s rights for those who recognise themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. An official launch will be held on the 16th of November in Te a Cofi, Caernarfon.

Creative European Event


On the 17th of October 2016, the FEANTSA Youth Network marked the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty 2016 with co-ordinated action across European cities (Amsterdam, Berlin, Belgrade, Caernarfon, Copenhagen, Waterford) to impress upon policymakers and the general public that every young person has the right to a home. Network members took part in artistic demonstrations outside of landmarks and government buildings to highlight the growing issue of youth homelessness. To see more photos - click here

Important Visits


This week has been a very busy week for GISDA with very important visits happening in Caernarfon and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

On Monday the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children, Carl Sargeant came to visit the moving on flat in Tre Gof, Caernarfon. He got the opportunity to chat with Tyron Williams, one of the tenants in the flats about his life and his hopes for the future. It was a great opportunity to see the excellent partnership work for young people between GISDA and Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd.

On Monday as well Sian Gwenllian, the Assembly Member for Arfon, came to visit Hafan, the hostel in Caernarfon. It was an opportunity for her to meet the young people and to see the work that is done in with the young people in the hostel.

Liz Saville, the Member of Parliament for Meirionnydd, came to visit Blaenau Ffestiniog on Tuesday. An opportunity for her to chat with the young people that are living and receiving support in our hostels in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

We would like to thank them all for taking the time to meet and visit our young people here in GISDA.

Musicians Against Homelessness

poster poster

During the first week in October there will be two gigs arranged that are part of the ‘Musicians Against Homelessness’ activities. These gigs are arranged all over Britain and the idea has been developed by Alan McGee that has, over the years., managed bands such as Oasis. Over Britain the money raised is going towards the charity Crisis who works with homeless people in London, but as these gigs are arranged in Gwynedd half of the money raised will go towards the GISDA does with young vulnerable and homeless people.

We would like to thank all the bands that are part of the gigs and to Sera Owen for arranging the gig in Caernarfon. For more information contact us annes@gisda.co.uk
