Welsh Language Volunteer Mentors


North Wales Police is committed to improving and enhancing its capacity to deliver on citizen focussed policing. The Force is also required to conform to duties in accordance with linguistic legislation in Wales. In these aims the force has introduced an extensive development and training programme for all staff to enable them to acquire, improve on and gain confidence in using the Welsh Language whether it is for serving members of the public or conducting internal business. To aid this ongoing programme, North Wales Police welcomes Welsh speaking volunteers from the community who would like to assist its endeavours in helping staff gain confidence in using the Welsh language.    Interested volunteers are invited to submit ideas as to how they envisage they could assist in this way eg mentoring on a one to one basis or by running a workshop, supporting the use of written Welsh, and so on.

Should anyone like to speak about this opportunity please contact Meic Raymant, Head of Welsh Language Services, who would be happy to talk through ideas on 01286 670810.
