Come and join us for the launch of the Caring in Welsh Award. The award recognises and celebrates care workers who’ve made a difference to people’s lives by providing care and support in Welsh.

Nominations were open to any paid care workers in social care or early years and childcare in Wales, and who provide excellent care through the medium of Welsh. The winner and runners-up will be announced at the event.

The event will also address the importance of the Welsh language in the WeCare campaign, the national campaign to attract, recruit and retain more care workers in Wales, which launched in March 2019.
