We have excellent feedback on our support:
Without the help of Diverse Cymru I would have thrown the towel in a long time before the completion of all the forms. The service and advice given was excellent from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble for Dawn when I asked questions, her knowledge of how the systems work is first class and I cannot thank her enough
