Our strategic objectives and vision

Our vision is to see a country where people can use the Welsh language in their everyday lives.  

The principal aim of the Commissioner is to promote and facilitate the use of the Welsh language. 

In doing so, the Commissioner must have regard to: 

  • the official status of the Welsh language in Wales;  
  • the duties to use the Welsh language which have been set by the Welsh Language Standards, and the rights which arise from enforcing those duties;  
  • the principle that the Welsh language should be treated no less favourably than the English language in Wales, and;  
  • the principle that persons in Wales should be able to live their lives through the medium of the Welsh language if they choose to do so.  

The Commissioner has a strategic plan that sets out the direction for the organisation’s work and defines its vision, values and strategic objectives.
