Grŵp Gwalia Cyf is a leading non-profit provider of social housing, care and support services in south, mid and west Wales. Its housing portfolio exceeds 10,000 units of accommodation including specialist provision for older people and students. It has earned a reputation for innovative design and environmental architecture.
An experienced provider of services for older people, Gwalia operates residential and extra care homes across Neath Port Talbot, Swansea and Carmarthenshire. In January 2013 it will open its first nursing home, Gwalia Mynydd Mawr, in Tumble, Carmarthenshire. This £6.5 million development will specialise in caring for people with dementia within a state-of-the art environment that prioritises choice, independence, dignity and respect.
Gwalia’s care and support division, the largest organisation of its type in Wales, cares for over 2,000 people across a broad range of client groups. These include supported accommodation projects for young people at risk of homelessness and people with learning disabilities or other specific support needs.
Gwalia is also a successful commercial landlord and manages Llys Glas: a mixed-use development at the old police station in Swansea that offers artist studios, offices, gallery and retail space including the successful arts café bar and bistro, Tapestri, run by Gwalia as a social enterprise.
