"Dafydd Thomas, through the Wellbeing Planner, worked with Interlink to complete a research study in relation to older people called ‘Isolation to Integration’. We found Dafydd to be committed, knowledgeable, professional and helpful. We have worked with many partners on research projects over the years, with mixed results. I must say working with Dafydd has been a real pleasure, very worthwhile and achieved the results we wanted. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Dafydd to all our partners."

"Throughout the first few months of 2015, Dafydd provided the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) invaluable support as a member of our commissioning panel for the What Works Centre for Wellbeing call for applications. He produced high standard reviews of several extensive project applications, and acted as a panellist at the final interview stage of the process. The applications received requested up to £1m, and Dafydd provided insightful comments which influenced the decision making of this highly complex commissioning. We would have no reluctance in recommending Dafydd for similar work in the future."

"I was pleased to work alongside Dafydd for over seven years. In that time he firmly placed wellbeing at the heart of Welsh policy development. Seeing the work of Wellbeing Wales resonate with policy makers across Wales was inspiring and rewarding. I've learnt so much from Dafydd's energy around this agenda and in particular his tenacity around organisational and strategy development.
I'm pleased to see Dafydd build on his expertise in his new role and would not hesitate to recommend Dafydd for collaborative projects and joint working."

"Dafydd is a sympathetic researcher, experienced in working in complex policy areas and on sensitive human issues. He has worked with us interviewing school staff and pupils; struggling voluntary sector organisations reluctant to commit precious time; and young people with no idea what the future will bring. He brings a light touch professionalism and analytical thinking, along with a commitment to meet deadlines, to all his work with us."
