We were delighted to welcome the Minister for Finance & Local Government Rebecca Evans MS to GISDA alongside her officials this week. We are so grateful to them for taking so much interest in our work, and are happy to say that they were very impressed with the progress made on our exciting project, Y Maes. We look forward to welcoming them back upon its completion.

GISDA has saved me from a broken home and helped me get an independent, happy life.

If I were to talk to someone about GISDA I would tell them how amazing it is. I am where I am today not just of my own hard work and commitment; I could not have done it without GISDA’s staff.
