A Denbighshire of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language
What we want
Be a county where Welsh is a living, thriving language. The county will also maximise its rich cultural heritage and natural assets to support economic prosperity, skills development, and community cohesion.
What we aim to do:
- Play our part in achieving one million Welsh Speakers in Wales by 2050, by delivering the Welsh Language Strategy with partners and communities. This includes:
- Ensuring everyone can access services through the Welsh language naturally, and at all stages in their lives.
- Supporting children and families during their early years to develop confidence in using the Welsh language.
- Support the broader use of Welsh and the celebration of Welsh culture in the community, including workplace settings.
- Building a culture and ethos that encourages the daily use of Welsh by elected members and council staff, providing training and social opportunities to improve their confidence in using the language.
- Grow the services available from the Welsh Language Centre in St Asaph to benefit the wider county.
- Develop a cultural strategy and programme of events that includes:
- Promoting Denbighshire’s rich culture and heritage.
- Making the best use of our great natural assets, including the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the newly proposed National Park.
- Working in partnership to deliver an improved and sustainable archive service for North Wales.
