Welsh language Policy Statement

The ‘Policy Statement regarding the Welsh language’ has been launched
in Carmarthenshire. The launch was part of Gŵyl Hwyl Llandybie Fun
Festival, Gŵyl Fwyd Castell Newydd Emlyn Food Festival and Cwm
Gwendraeth’s Mabolgampau Meithrin Sports held in Pontyberem Park.

The document was prepared by Mentrau Sir Gâr Partnership Group, which
includes the Welsh Language Board, Carmarthenshire County Council,
Menter Bro Dinefwr, Menter Cwm Gwendraeth and Menter Gorllewin Sir
Gâr. The group promotes, supports and ensures the use of the Welsh
language in every aspect of life in Carmarthenshire.
The vision is to see establishments and organisations working together
and with people across the county, from all backgrounds, to promote
the Welsh language.
The Carmarthenshire Integrated Community Strategy Partnerships have
committed to five aims of the document which are:
• To increase the numbers and percentages who speak, understand, read
and write Welsh
• To increase the use of the Welsh language and to raise the
confidence of Welsh speakers
• To increase the opportunities to learn and receive training through
the medium of Welsh
• Maintain and develop viable communities and networks of Welsh speakers
• Develop and promote Welsh Services and bilingual workplaces.
The document is available at
