All documentation relating to the application for a grant, bursaries or financial assistance to individual applicants, is published in Welsh and English. Applicants can be submitted in Welsh and are treated no less favourably than applications submitted in English.

If it is necessary to interview individual applicants for grants or financial assistance, interviews are available in Welsh or applicants who applied in Welsh, using simultaneous interpretation if required. If an application for a grant or financial assistance is submitted in Welsh, we inform the applicant of the outcome of our decision in Welsh.

When making a decision in relation to the award of a grant or financial assistance e consider the effects such an award or assistance would have on the opportunities for the applicants and others to use the Welsh language and ensure that our decision would neither reduce opportunities for persons to use the language nor cause adverse effects. The decision may be taken or implemented (for example, by imposing conditions) so that it would have positive effects, or increased positive effects, on opportunities for applicants to use the Welsh language.
