Welsh Language Scheme Annual Monitoring Report 2021

Under the Welsh Language Act 1993, we have obligations to treat the English and Welsh languages equally

We launched our Welsh Language Scheme (the Scheme) in 2011. Since then, we have completed nine implementation reports on the Scheme for the Welsh Language Commissioner’s attention.

We have adopted the principle that in the conduct of public business and administration of justice in Wales, we will treat the English and Welsh languages on a basis of equality. Our Scheme sets out how we give effect to that principle when providing services to the public in Wales.

During 2020-2021, we have continued to implement the provisions of our Scheme.

This included:

  • We have increased the Welsh content on our website by 19% from the
    previous year
  • Assessing updates to policies against our Welsh Language Scheme
  • 99% of the organisation's workforce receiving Welsh language awareness
    training since April 2020

We look forward to engaging further with the Welsh Government in the development of Welsh Language Standards and continuing to meet our commitments to the Welsh-speaking public.
