The Active Offer Package of Support is here to help you implement more Welsh language into your services.
Living here in Wales, inclusiveness can be a big part of your organisations’ success, and offering your services in Welsh is a big step to fulfilling your promise to the Welsh speaking population.
The Active Offer is all about providing a service in Welsh without someone having to specifically ask for it.
As well as having a cultural impact you’ll also be complying with the Welsh Language Measure of 2011 that states, if you’re an organisation that receives funding from your local authority or health board, you are inclined to deliver or at least work towards an Active Offer within your organisations’ services.
We can support your organisation with the following:
- Chat about the Active Offer and how it affects you.
Have a chat with PAVOs Development Officer for the Active Offer to find out what it is, what your organisation can do to deliver it, and to get a general idea of where to start your Active Offer journey.
- Supportive Training on the Active Offer
Attend one of the project’s officer many supportive training sessions breaking down how your organisation can go about making a start with its Active Offer. This training is free and is a great starting point for anyone wanting to make a start or to refresh their understanding of the Active Offer.
- Support with developing an Active Offer Action Plan
Through direct support and guidance from the project officer, your organisation can develop an action plan of the Active Offer’s implementation into your services. Having a plan for your step by step approach can ensure its success.
