Menter Iaith Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen a Mynwy


Menter Iaith BGTM was established in 2007 making it one of the youngest Welsh Language Initiatives, or ‘Mentrau Iaith’ amongst the 22 that exist across Wales. The Menter serves three counties – Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen and Monmouthshire.

Practically, the ‘Mentrau Iaith’ were established to arrange a variety of events for people of all ages, background and linguistic ability to enjoy and socialise in Welsh including parents, families, children and young people, adults and learners. The Mentrau offer community events and activities in order to promote use of the Welsh language.

The Mentrau are funded by Welsh Government.

Menter BGTM works in the local community in many ways to create opportunities for people to use Welsh. This includes:

  • Welsh medium schools
  • English medium schools – in accordance with Welsh Government’s 2050 Strategy
  • Learners of all ages be they current Welsh for Adults learners or individuals who have finished their courses and wish to live their lives in Welsh.
  • Welsh speakers who have moved here or have been brought up in one of the three counties

Working with our local partners is also important to ensure the continuation and development of the Welsh language locally

  • MIC
  • Government
  • Welsh for Adults
