menter caerdydd

Menter Caerdydd’s main aim is to ensure opportunity for Cardiff residents to use their Welsh on a social level outside of education and the workplace; raising awareness about the language, and offer help and support to learners and non-Welsh speaking residents of the city.
By now there are nearly 40,000 a year visiting or using the services provided by the Menter Caerdydd.  The Welsh language is growing in our capital city and the language can be heard more and more on the street and in our communities.  

There is an increase in the numbers of children, young people and adults who speak Welsh in Cardiff and there is growing demand for Welsh medium social in the city.

Listening to the communities of Cardiff is at the heart of our service, and developments such as Yr Hen Lyfrgell and Tafwyl are a direct result of people's desire to see the Welsh language grow in our City.
