Five Year Welsh Language Strategy 2022-2027
The Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 replaced the Welsh Language Act 1993 and as part of the new legislation, in Wales the Welsh language has equal legal status with English and must not be treated less favourably.
Local authorities in Wales must produce a local Welsh Language Strategy that sets out how they will promote the use of the Welsh language and increase the number of Welsh speakers in their area.
This is Caerphilly County Borough Council’s second Five Year Welsh Language Strategy. It sets out actions on how we will promote the Welsh language, facilitate the use of the Welsh language and increase the number of Welsh speakers in the county borough by working in partnership.
We have worked in collaboration with our partners to develop a strategy that builds on our past successes, meets the needs of the Welsh speakers and learners in the county borough, meets the legislative requirements and most importantly, is meaningful, appropriate and achievable for everyone involved.
The Five Year Welsh Language Strategy 2022-2027 was approved by Cabinet on the 9 March 2022.
