DYFODOL’S CALL TO DEFEND THE SERVICE AND PRINCIPLE OF GWYNEDD’S LANGUAGE CENTRES

Dyfodol i’r Iaith has expressed dismay over possible cutbacks to Gwynedd Council’s Language Centres. These Centres provide immersion in the Welsh language to primary pupils who are new to the area, thus preparing them for Welsh education and facilitating their introduction to life within Welsh communities

Heini Gruffudd, Dyfodol’s Chair said:

“Any cutbacks to such a priceless service would be sheer nonsense. These Centres have already proved their worth and success. They also encapsulate the principle that is essential to the success of the Government’s Strategy to create a million Welsh speakers – that the Welsh language must to be accessible to all if it is to flourish.

We therefore call on the Government and Gwynedd Council to acknowledge and sustain the impressive work of these Centres; to hold them up, indeed, as a shining example of what can and should be achieved for the good of the Welsh language.”
