Welcome to Menter Iaith Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen and Monmouthshire’s new website. The last year has been a busy period for the Menter with extensive changes to our status and procedures. We’re now a registered charity and have adopted a new governance system. This is part of working towards PQASSO standards to ensure that we’re ready to face the challenges of working in a modern and transparent manner. We have also moved offices from St. James’ hall in Pontypool to Mamhilad Park Business Estate. There are great facilities here and huge potential to increase the use of Welsh by local businesses.
