Welcome to Merthyr Tydfil Institute for the Blind Training

At MTIB we operate a range of programmes that are designed to help us achieve our mission statement, which is "To provide people with disabilities, or who are disadvantaged, the opportunity for sustained employment." If you have a disability that puts you at a disadvantage of obtaining or sustaining a job, and you are in the South Wales area, we are there to help!

MTIB also operate as a supported workshop producing high-quality assembled frames, offering cardboard conversion services and button fabrication to the furniture industry. Click here to access this site.

Case Study

Craig Davies

When Craig signed up to the Work Choice programme in August 2015 at MTIB he had not worked for 23 years. The only experience he had was helping out in his parents pub – which was not regular shifts and unpaid – it was only if the bar was unusually busy. He didn’t even have his own bank account.
