Welsh Language Development Plan 

The Scheme intends to provide your organisation with a clear plan to follow, to maintain, and develop your Welsh language services over time. It also demonstrates to public sector funding bodies that you are meeting Welsh language requirements.

If you’d like to create a Welsh Language Development Plan why not complete this short self assessment? Once you’ve completed the assessment we’ll work with you to develop your plan.

After creating your Development Plan, it's important that you let your service users know what services you have available to them. You could receive the Commissioner’s official recognition for doing so.

The Welsh Offer is the Commissioner’s mark of recognition for organisations with a strong Plan. Here's an opportunity to transform your engagement with the public by showing how proud you are to offer services in Welsh.

If you already have a Policy or Plan in place, we can work with you to develop it further and work towards gaining official recognition.

The team will help you identify at least five key Welsh language services. 

The Welsh Language Development Plan is your long-term plan for developing your Welsh language provision. With our support you will be able to submit your Welsh Offer for official recognition from the Commissioner. You will then be able to use the exclusive logo.

To receive approval the Commissioner must be confident that your Welsh Offer is a fair reflection of what is available.

"We know that the Welsh language gives your business or charity an advantage.

We’ve launched The Cynnig Cymraeg (Welsh Offer) to help you promote your Welsh services to the public and to increase the use of those services.

We also want you to get the credit you deserve for engaging with people across Wales in their chosen language."
