More than £4m to promote and facilitate the use of Welsh

£4.2m has been awarded to 77 organisations to promote and facilitate the use of the Welsh language by the Minister for Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning Eluned Morgan.
Tuesday 03 April 2018

Groups that will benefit directly from this fund include:

  • Yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol
  • Cymdeithas Eisteddfodau Cymru
  • Mentrau Iaith
  • Merched y Wawr
  • Young Farmers Clubs Wales
  • Papurau Bro Welsh - language local newsletters
  • Urdd Gobaith Cymru
  • Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru

Announcing the funding, Minister for Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning Eluned Morgan said:

“Reaching one million Welsh speakers by 2050 is a very ambitious target and while education is key to this aim, the every day use of the language in all walks of life is equally important.

“Welsh cannot simply be the language of the classroom. For it to thrive, we all, as Welsh speakers, have a responsibility to use it. Organisations funded by these grants provide a wide range of opportunities for children, young people and adults to use Welsh socially.

“High profile events such as the National Eisteddfod and Tafwyl, as well as the opportunities provided by the organisations at a local level play a vital part in ensuring that the Welsh language and culture is strong in our communities across Wales.

“These grants recognise the contribution of these organisations to the future well-being of the language and will support the excellent work they do in promoting Welsh as a living, vibrant language.”
