Welsh Language Board
The Welsh Language Board is a statutory organisation, sponsored by the Welsh Assembly Government. The Board’s main aim is to make it easier for everyone to use Welsh in all walks of life, to increase people’s confidence in their ability to use the language, to encourage more people to speak, read or write it in new situations, and to pass on the language to their children. www.byig-wlb.org.uk
