A day to Promote Welsh Language Rights, 6 December 2019

Ceredigion County Council is working jointly with the Welsh Language Commissioner to celebrate a day to Promote Welsh Language Rights. We as a Council would like to inform you that you are welcome to use the Welsh language when contacting the Council. We would like to encourage you as a Welsh speaker to make use of these rights which are available to you; and if you are learning the language, why not practice your Welsh when using the council's services.

Aled Roberts, Welsh Language Commissioner said, “Today there are over 120 organisations operating the Welsh language standards, which means that the public have a right to use the language with them. We are pleased that organisations such as Ceredigion County Council   have taken the opportunity today to promote Welsh language rights. Let us now, as Welsh speakers and learners, make the most of our rights and chose the language.”

Ceredigion County Council is very happy to be celebrating Rights Day along with the Welsh Language Commissioner. We encourage everyone to use and share the Welsh language. We have hard-working and dedicated staff who speak Welsh across the council's services. We encourage people to contact us in Welsh and to use the services available. Increasing the numbers who use the Welsh language across the country is part of the Welsh Government vision to create a million Welsh speakers by 2050. Be a part of the journey - give it a go!

Your Council, your language, your choice.
