Welsh Language Rights Day

Welsh Language Rights Day

Welsh Language Rights Day is held annually in December and marks the date on which the Welsh Language Measure was passed by Parliament. The Measure confirms the official status of the Welsh language, and establishes the principle that the Welsh language should not be treated less favourably than the English language in Wales.

The day is a fantastic opportunity to promote our Welsh language services, celebrate our language and your rights to use the Welsh language when dealing with us:

You have the right to:

  • Write letters or e-mails to us in Welsh.
  • Speak to us in Welsh on the telephone
  • Receive Welsh language letters and emails from us
  • View our Website in Welsh
  • Use our social media accounts in Welsh
  • Apply for jobs in Welsh
  • Make complaints in Welsh
