Our Work

Our Core Work 

Our aim is to encourage and support community, linguistic and economic development by holding a variety of activities and events targeting families, children and young people and the community to encourage everyone to have the opportunity and to use, practice and strengthen their Welsh. By offering an initial taste of the Welsh language and culture to many, we hope to encourage the number of Welsh speakers and help contribute towards the target of one million Welsh speakers by 2050.


Gŵyl Canol Dre

Gŵyl Canol Dre is a festival organised by Menter Gorllewin Sir Gâr which was held for the first time in 2018 in Parc Myrddin, Carmarthen, which is one of the main Welsh events in the Carmarthen area. The festival is a day of fun and entertainment for people from Carmarthenshire and beyond, including a range of activities and events for everyone, including performances of live music, sport, literature, art and a variety of workshops. There are two stages on the field, one featuring well-known individuals and bands from the Welsh rock scene performing along with various performances by schools in the area. The festival offers a platform for businesses with a stall area to sell goods and products and to local organisations to promote their services.

Profi Programme

The aim of the Profi Project is to improve the skills of young people in order to prepare them for the world of work. Through the scheme we provide support for young people to get to know their skills and strengths including advice on interviews, identifying skills for the world of work, discovering work world opportunities, CV support and applying for jobs. We will encourage them to take advantage of local opportunities including work experience, volunteering, apprenticeships and jobs.

We will make this a reality by going out to schools and further education colleges in order to present different aspects of the project to them in the form of talks and workshops and encouraging them to register on the website.

The website contains catchy, digital, appealing advice that will help to take the key steps into the world of work. There is a series of podcasts and films on the website in order to showcase the opportunities and skills needed for various sectors. Learners will be able to identify the development of their skills and take advantage of special offers in shops, cafes and organisations by using a Profi Rewards Card.

Head over to Menter Gorllewin Sir Gâr's YouTube Channel for a taste of our work or head over to our website. If you have any queries contact the team.
