The Organisation


Dyfodol i’r Iaith is open to anybody who loves the Welsh language. Its aim is to exert influence through constitutional means on the substance and content of public policies and legislation in order to promote and nurture the growth of the Welsh language.

It will campaign for Wales and its people, winning support and respect for the language and ensuring that the Welsh language remains a live issue on the political agenda.

This is an organisation that has a vision and is full of enthusiasm – it will be a voice for the language in the new Wales!
