Dr Jeremy Evas, Prof. Diarmait Mac Giolla Chriost and Prof. Colin H Williams with Cwmni Sbectrwm

As a consequence of the enactment of the Welsh Government’s ‘Iaith Pawb:A National Action Plan to Create a Bilingual Wales’ in 2003, the Welsh Language Board received significant additional finance to support  community language planning.  The WLB in turn developed its partenrships with several agencies throughout Wales, including the Mentrau iaith, the Urdd Gobaith Cymru, the National eisteddfod, the Welsh Young Farmers Clubs, Merched y Wawr, Mudiad Meithrin and other agencies which promoted Welsh.

The aim of this  research is to prepare a report for the Government of Wales on the work of the Mentrau iaith, the Language  Action Plans and the Programme to Promote Welsh in Aman Tawe.  It is anticipated that the recommendations will impact on the Welsh Government’s reformulation of Community Language Policy and Planning in the coming years.
