Menter Iaith Merthyr Tudful – Developing the Welsh Language in the Community
Menter Iaith Merthyr Tudful is at the centre of the development of the Welsh Language through the the work of Canolfan Soar and the integration of the language in the local community.
We offer a wide range of social opportunities for families, learners and children and young people, to use the language in our local community.
The Menter’s activity programme is organsied in order to provide a service to our community in the best possible way. If you have an idea, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are always ready to listen and support any plans ideas for a new community activity.
To join in with any of our activities, please visit ‘What’s On’, pop in for a chat, or contact us via phone or e-mail.
To discuss the development of any new ideas, please contact our Development Officer, Owen Howell, to discuss further.
The strategic aim of Menter Iaith Merthyr is to support the Welsh Governments strategy, ‘Cymraeg 2050: A million Welsh speakers,’ by increasing the use of the language in the community. This is done by the completion of targets which are set in partnership with the Welsh Government, alongside a network of Mentrau Iaith from across Wales.
Alongside the Welsh Language Strategy sits the Well-being of Future Generations Act, which focuses on creating a Wales that we want to live in, both now and in the future. Central to our ethos is the aim to see Merthyr Tydfil thriving as a hub of our culture, our heritage, and our language.
