Founded 1846: 'Its charitable objects are "to examine, preserve and illustrate the ancient monuments and remains of the history, language, manners, customs, arts and industries of Wales and the Marches and to educate the public in such matters" ... The Association holds two meetings each year, a week in mid-summer and an autumn weekend, visiting sites and monuments in all parts of Wales and, on occasions, in England, Ireland and abroad ... The Association takes an active role in supporting and disseminating research on the archaeology and history of Wales and the Marches'.

It provides an opportunity for the Welsh to meet and engage in Welsh culture. Today it aims to reflect all that is best in contemporary Welsh language, literature, arts and science and offers an opportunity to discuss a changing Wales ... Members may attend the Society’s regular lectures, held in London and Wales.'

Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers Grouping

Member of the Institute of Mathematics & its Applications Grouping

'We are a think tank and charity, independent of government and political parties. By bringing together experts from all backgrounds, we conceive ambitious and informed ideas which secure political commitments to improve our democracy, public services and economy. We provide platforms for debate, opportunities for people to make their voices heard and agenda-setting research. We are funded by our members, income from our events and training sessions, and supported by trusts, foundations and other funding bodies ... Our aim is to make Wales better.'

Member of The Inter Faith Network for the UK Grouping

'We are a registered charity, and work to inspire communities, develop writers and celebrate the literary culture of Wales. Literature Wales works in Welsh, English and bilingually across Wales ... We empower, improve and brighten lives through literature. Our projects are designed to make a difference and through words we help shape our society, economy and culture in Wales.'

'Nature is not only beautiful but it is also fundamental to our lives. We can’t survive without it, but Wales’s natural environment is in decline and so are the benefits that it delivers. The LNP Cymru project will build a nature recovery network to help reverse this, engaging people and communities, businesses and decision-makers in both practical action and strategic planning for a healthy, resilient and nature-rich Wales.'

Member of the Royal Meteorological Society Grouping

'Officially known as the Rhondda Rose Society, we are the biggest of our kind in Wales. In an attempt to widen our audience and attract new members, we took the decision to rebrand the society online as the Rose Society of Wales. At our rose festival, social events and meetings we will continue to be known as the Rhondda Rose Society.'

Member of the Royal Institute of British Architects Grouping

'Although we are the oldest Welsh department in Wales, we are looking to the future and to the development of our language, our society and our identity in contemporary Wales. The study of language and literature is combined with unique modules relevant to Welsh in today’s Wales ... Beyond our academic programmes, we are helping to ensure the prosperity of the Welsh language by working with the local community. The Welsh for Adults Centre teaches Welsh to more than 1,700 adults in Cardiff and the Vale. In addition to this the new Welsh for All programme offers Cardiff University students the opportunity to learn Welsh, completely free, alongside their academic studies.'

'Founded in 1943, WBKA is the umbrella organisation for 19 local associations across Wales. Representatives of these 19 associations, and specialist members, form the WBKA Council which meets three times a year.'
