P-05-739 Save TWF Services



This petition was submitted by Cymdeithas yr Iaith, which collected 912 signatures


Text of the Petition

 I call on the Welsh Government, in collaboration with Mudiad Meithrin, to revisit the previous government’s detrimental decision to cancel the TWF project. Specifically I call on the Government to take urgent action to:


  • reverse the decision to cut £200,000 from TWF’s successor project


  • restore the continuity of support offered by TWF which focussed on language transfer and national, rather than piecemeal, support for parents and children. This would entail the reappointment of officers to posts with a presence in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Monmouthshire, Torfaen and Wrexham


  • ensure funding for activities that promote the Welsh language for parents with links to services such as Welsh for Adults, the Mentrau Iaith (Language Initiatives), libraries and leisure centres, including activities that also provide support for post-natal mental health.
