Today, 7 December 2020, Ceredigion County Council is supporting national Welsh Language Rights Day.

This is a day to celebrate the Welsh language services offered by organisations, and the rights people have to use the Welsh language when dealing with them. It is an opportunity to promote Welsh language services and to try to increase the number choosing to use them.

On Welsh Language Rights Day, the Council is publishing a list of rights so that our service users know they have rights to use the Welsh language. As a Council we would like to see more people using our services in Welsh. We have set out to create a workforce that can work confidently through the medium of Welsh, and therefore want to encourage people to contact us in Welsh.

The Welsh language rights have been developed in accordance with the requirements of the Welsh Language Standards.

With us, you have rights to...

  1. Use Welsh on the phone
  2. Leaflets in Welsh
  3. Letter and email in Welsh
  4. Apply for a job in Welsh
  5. Speak Welsh in a reception
  6. Signs in Welsh
  7. Websites in Welsh
  8. Receive your documents in Welsh
  9. Social Media messages in Welsh

The Leader of Ceredigion County Council, Ellen ap Gwynn said “Ceredigion County Council is pleased to celebrate Welsh Rights Day 2020. We have hard-working and dedicated Welsh-speaking staff across Council services, and we want to encourage people to contact us in Welsh, and to use these services. If you are a Welsh speaker or learner, make sure you make use of the language and exercise the rights that are available to you.”
