Carers Wales launch new Welsh Language Commitment

01 March 2022

This St David’s Day, Carers Wales is delighted to reaffirm our commitment to the Welsh language with a new Welsh Language Development plan.

Carers Wales has worked alongside the Welsh Language Commissioner’s Office to develop this new plan. The Plan seeks to proactively encourage the use of Welsh through our work, and we are committed to ensuring Welsh is treated no less favourably than English.

Enhances to our Welsh Language offer will be rolled out across the year. This will include being able to read all our publications in Welsh, undertaking our campaigns in Welsh, contacting us in the Welsh language, improving access to Welsh content on our website and helping our staff learn Welsh.

We start with the launch of our first dedicated Welsh language social media channel - @GofalwyrCymru on Twitter. This channel will sit alongside our current portfolio of social media offerings to continue to share the latest news, opportunities and information for unpaid carers across Wales.

Carers Wales would also like to extend our thoughts and prayers to the family, friends and colleagues of the Welsh Language Commissioner Aled Roberts who sadly passed away recently.

Carers Wales Director, Claire Morgan:

‘Access to information and support is critical to enable unpaid carers to care safely and confidently. Today, we renew our commitment to providing information and support in the Welsh language.

Over the past two years, every information resource has been created bi-lingually including # our well-being hub and video resources. As we move forward, we are going to improve the visibility to these resources and increase the prominence of our Welsh Language offer.

This work sits alongside our overall aim to make our resources more accessible, including the ongoing production of easy read versions of our guides, videos with sign language and the adoption of hybrid events that support carers to reach us online or in person’.
