Arts Council of Wales | Welsh Language

Welsh Language

Arts Council of Wales adheres to the principle that, in the conduct of our business, we will treat Welsh and English equally.

The Welsh Language Standards, introduced under the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011, explain how public bodies in Wales are expected to use the Welsh language in the conduct of their business and their delivery of services.

Our Welsh Language Policy

Our Policy for Promoting and Facilitating the use of the Welsh Language details how this relates to our work. It covers:

  • Our Contact with the public
  • Our Implementation of the Scheme
  • Services provided by others (inlcuding our clients and partners)
  • Monitoring and reporting


Arts Council of Wales has established a Welsh Language Monitoring Group comprising Chair and staff representatives from all sections of the organisation’s operation and this body is charged with monitoring and reviewing the implementation of the scheme.

This body will meet regularly and will report and make recommendations to the Council's Chief Executive Officer and the Senior Management Team.

Further resources

Various additional resources relating to the Welsh language are available to the public on the Welsh Language Commissioner’s website.
