‘Bilingual is Better’ feature

Working in partnership with Bangor University, our Welsh learning program received some publicity this week in the Daily Post (17/06/2014). The learning program caters for the small number of Care Workers working with Cymorth Llaw who struggle for confidence in Welsh or who may be unable to speak Welsh at all. 

‘Welsh in the Workplace’ has been a very successful program of learning for Cymorth Llaw staff and our business development manager Craig Hogg explained that;

“People with Welsh language skills are hugely important to our service users and that’s why we are totally committed to providing our staff with every opportunity to learn and develop skills that help them deliver the best possible level of care. That also includes Welsh language tuition.”

Craig continued “We are totally committed to the Welsh language and we continue to set positive examples for service provision in North Wales. Cymorth Llaw is an organisation that has kept  to it’s obligations for the last 14 years and we continue to deliver what we say we will – a quality service, delivered by highly skilled local people who are equipped to deliver a person centred care at home service.”

“We have never claimed to be care experts, even with the extensive sector working backgrounds of our workforce. We wont sell people a dream and our service speaks for itself. We continue to provide the people we care for with a quality service tailored to meet individual need, and we continue making a difference to peoples lives in North Wales.”
