Supporting the Mentrau Iaith

Dyfodol i’r Iaith is delighted that more than 1,800 people have signed our petition in the National Assembly for Wales supporting the work of all the Mentrau Iaith in Wales.

The petition was presented to the Chair of the Petitions Committee, William Powell AM on Wednesday, April 2nd  by Elin Maher from Newport Menter Iaith and Emily Cole from Mentrau Iaith Cymru.

Dyfodol i’r Iaith decided to prepare the petition as a response to the independent report published by Cardiff University earlier this year. That report said that the important work of the Mentrau should continue but that the Mentrau were not fairly or adequately funded for them to operate to their full potential.
