WCVA is looking forward to welcoming the National Eisteddfod to Cardiff Bay next week. Join us at stand 119 where we’ll be celebrating all things third sector in Wales.

 Kate Caru Elusennau

On the WCVA stand this year, we'll be collecting your thoughts and feelings on charities on our #CaruElusennau wall - but don't make your mind up just yet, as we're hosting a range of activities throughout the week to showcase the best Wales' charities have to offer.

Groups including City Hospice, Dawns i Bawb, BAWSO, Techniquest, Tros Gynnal Plant, The Pituitary Foundation, Play Wales, Music in Hospitals, and NSPCC will be showering attendees with glitter, dancing, playing ukuleles and more as we learn about the exceptional work they're doing in Wales.

There will also be some food for thought in the form of panel discussions, with topics ranging from charity leadership and Welsh language volunteering to the third sector's role in delivering Cymraeg 2050.

Meanwhile, in our HQ Baltic House (conveniently located just around the corner from the Maes) we'll be continuing the conversation with presentations from the Josef Herman Foundation and Community Transport Association UK. Children in Wales will also be hosting their annual forum featuring an update on the implications of Brexit on young people from Mark Drakeford AM, Cabinet Secretary for Finance.

Finally, WCVA member Cytûn are taking over the Harbour room at Baltic House for the week, running a series of events culminating in a Welsh language roundtable discussion on life after Brexit in Wales. For more information, check out their website.

Visit us on stand 119 throughout the week (3-11 August 2018) and share your love for charities with us, take part in one of the many discussions and events, or if you can't make it to the Maes please get involved on Twitter using the hashtag #CaruElusennau.
