Our Welsh Language Scheme
Our Welsh language scheme sets out our commitment to provide a bilingual service.
As a government we positively encourage the active promotion of a bilingual Wales. However, for our Welsh language policies to be credible, we must lead by example. Have we followed our own advice and guidelines to the letter? We are committed to providing a quality bilingual service. If mistakes are made along the way, we are happy to be held to account, and rightly so.
Like other public bodies, we have a Welsh Language Scheme that:
- explains what you can expect from us in terms of our bilingual services
- sets out how we will treat the English and Welsh languages equally in our policies and in the services we deliver.
We are proud to set the standard in Wales for other bodies implementing Welsh language schemes. Ours was approved, following extensive consultation, by the Welsh Language Board in December 2006. It was noted to be ‘far reaching with the potential to make a difference’. Our revised scheme was published in 2011.
An independent report commissioned by the Welsh Language Board in 2007 also found our bilingual website to be an example of good practice.
We always welcome suggestions for improvements to the services we provide through the medium of Welsh. If you have any such suggestions, or wish to make complaint about an aspect of our Welsh language service, please contact:
