Grant to help promote the innovative use of Welsh – closing date for applications September 22

Could your social care business promote the increased use of Welsh? If so you can apply for a grant from the Welsh Government's ‘Cymraeg 2050’ Grant Scheme which is now open to applications – the closing date for application September 22, at 5pm.

Applications for grants are accepted from organisations from the third and private sectors and from public bodies for activities not covered by their statutory Welsh Language Standards regulations.

The aims of the scheme are to fund innovative projects that meet one (or more) of the criteria for “innovation” set out below:

  • projects that increase the social use of Welsh through technology
  • projects that offer new ideas and activities which aim to promote or facilitate the use of Welsh and which have not been used in the past
  • projects that offer a new way of working in order to encourage, promote or facilitate the use of the Welsh language
  • projects that take a risk with the possibility of far reaching impact if successful, but requires the investment in order to pilot the idea and to assess impact before streamlining the project into core activities
