In the past we have run focus and research groups for policy-makers and influencers, public sector organisation bodies and for academic purposes, among others.
ROOM HIRE, OFFICE AND DESK SPACE HIRE:
We are located at 7 Neville Street, just off of St. David’s Hospital, in Riverside, home to many BME communities of Cardiff. Our Centre spans across four floors, including 3 large training rooms, an IT suite and on-site crèche with small outdoor space and a fully equipped kitchen, adjacent to our largest training room, suitable for small refreshments as well as hot lunches. We are also able to provide catering services as part of space hire. Additionally, we offer meeting rooms with high speed wireless internet access and projector, office space or individual desks for hire. Please note that given the nature of our building and the confined space in Riverside, our building is not wheelchair-friendly.
