We have moved!
After 39 years located in Shand House we have moved with the Cardiff Institute for the Blind and RNIB Cymru to a superb new resource centre right in the heart of the city centre.
The building has undergone modifications to ensure it has the best possible facilities for those with a visual or mobility impairment.
The SWTMA was generously offered temporary accomodation in Llandaff, Cardiff so that we could ensure both our publications continued without interruption.
