Area Committee

Area Committees focus on improving the Welsh language provision in a specific area – town, village, valley, locality – to increase the use of Welsh using the Gweithredu’n Lleol system.

Some responsibilities

  • Attend meetings
  • Identify local needs
  • Create action plan to meet the needs e.g. events program

The Gweithredu’n Lleol plan has been created for communities with a high number of Welsh speakers to avoid a reduction in the use of the language. However, you can use the system in any area, whatever the linguistic picture, as a basis for identifying and meeting needs. A member of staff from the local menter has received training to support new area committees or who need support.
