The Company was established for the purpose of promoting education, science and technology and in particular the promotion of skills and associated professional activities in Wales.

The Company is committed to promoting arts, science and technology throughout the Principality by our prestigious awards scheme making awards, travel scholarships and bursaries to develop the talents of young people throughout Wales.

As with most Livery Companies, the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales has affiliated interests with our armed forces, the Company is proud of our links with the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force, Policeand Cadet Forces.

The Welsh Livery Guild was granted a Royal Charter by Her Majesty the Queen in 2013 becoming the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales, the first Charter to be granted to a Welsh organisation since devolution.

Membership of the Company as a Liveryman is open to persons who are resident in Wales or have connections with Wales and who support our objectives. Where a person is not eligible to become a Liverymen another form of Membership, such as Freeman or Journeyman may be available. Applications for membership must be supported by two members of the Company unless the applicant is already a Liveryman of a City of London Livery Company when a single proposer will be required.

The Court can, at its discretion, elect persons of distinction to be Honorary Liverymen or Honorary Freemen.
