Are you a Welsh speaker?

Friday, December 6 is Diwrnod Hyrwyddo Hawliau/Welsh Language Rights Day.

We wanted to make sure you know what your rights are when you come to use council services.

The services you have a right to use in Welsh include:

  • speaking to a receptionist
  • interacting with us online
  • job applications
  • forms and documents

and many more.

You can find out more about your rights at the website of the Welsh Language Commissioner.

Here’s a video we put out recently of Lois Russell-Fone, a Welsh-speaking member of our Registrar team.

Watch the video to find out what Lois’ experiences have been, and how she’s used her Welsh language skills while working for the council.

Stephen Jones, Welsh Language Coordinator at Wrexham Council, said “It’s important that Welsh speakers are aware of their rights and Diwrnod Hyrwyddo Hawliau is a great way to raise awareness of them.

“I would encourage all Welsh speakers and Welsh learners to use their Welsh when contacting the council.”

If you have any difficulties when attempting to access Welsh language services, please contact cymraeg@wrexham.gov.uk
