Welsh Language Commissioner on Promoting the Welsh Language

For businesses and third sector organisations

The Welsh language could benefit you. Whether within the private or third sector, there are clear advantages to using the Welsh language. The purpose of this website is to provide support and advice to organisations wishing to make use of the Welsh language on a voluntary basis*, using Cynllun Hybu’r Gymraeg – the Welsh Language Promotion Plan – for the benefit of you and your customers and clients.

This website is full of information about the advantages, examples of good practice, and the experiences of businesses and charities of using the Welsh language. There is practical advice in our various guidelines, and evidence and research showing the value of the Welsh language, as well as a calendar of events and sessions where you can learn more.

For more information about the progress plan, click next or, to speak to someone in your area, please contact the Welsh Language Commissioner.

*If you are a public organisation, or think you may be legally required to provide bilingual services, there is further information on the main website of the Welsh Language Commissioner by following the link below. If you are uncertain, please contact us for more information.
