    2011 - ICE was born

    In 2011 the founding team of Gareth Jones, Mandy Weston, William and Anthony Record hosted a campfire chat to share plans of ICE. They had an empty building, stacks of drive and huge plans to change Wales for the good.

    " Welsh ICE must be recognised for its contribution to not only the local economy but the wider economy. It must be recognised not only for its contribution to business but secondary impacts such as well-being. As a health company we know that there are so many determinants of health ....job, home, financial, education....I think you will find Welsh ICE is supporting change in a lot of these areas and this will have a massive impact on the individuals it serves.
