Dyfodol i’r Iaith gave a warm welcome to the First Minister, Carwyn Jones’s announcement that over £1.5 million will be made available to set up Welsh language centres across Wales.
Funding will be available for projects in Anglesey, Cardiff, Tregaron, Bangor, Cardigan and Pontardawe.
Dyfodol i’r Iaith believes that such centres are of key importance in regenerating the Welsh language. The success of the centres that have already been established demonstrates that they provide a means of establishing innovative, informal and fun networks for Welsh speakers and learners.
Heini Gruffudd, Dyfodol i’r Iaith’s Chair said:
“We hope to see centres established throughout Wales, becoming powerhouses for the Welsh language. This announcement brings us a step closer to realising our vision. We also hope that this represents a first step towards a new and more expansive strategy for the teaching of Welsh for adults.”
