While we would welcome applications for membership from all interested parties, we would most like to recruit members with experience in the not-for-profit sector and of working with under-represented groups and communities. We also have a particular need for a new board member with keen financial and business acumen.
No previous board experience is required and we are happy to offer buddying system for those new to board membership.

Y Cwmni Siarad (YCS) was established in 2011 as a Social Enterprise company limited by guarantee. In February 2019 we reconstituted as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, charity number 1182049.
The Next 5 years
The Big Lottery Fund People and Places grant provides an exciting opportunity for innovation and learning over the next 5 years, during which YCS will expand into Rhondda Cynon Taff and seek to increase partnership work with other organisations throughout South Wales in order improve access to counselling for under-represented groups and communities.
Our Mission Statement is:
'Working with others to provide evidence based support which meets the emotional and psychological needs of underrepresented members of the community'
We currently deliver a low-cost counselling service in Cardiff and Bridgend and an LGBT networking project.
Current Board Members & Meetings
Our current board mostly consists of individuals with experience in providing psychological therapies.
Our board meetings take place quarterly in Cardiff Bay/central Cardiff, though with our expansion into RCT this may change in future; we also work in sub groups for specific pieces of work outside of these meetings.
