Details

The aim of the Scheme is to ensure the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) continues to comply with the Welsh Language Act 1993 by enabling everyone who receives a service from the MOJ in Wales, or who communicates with us, to do so through the medium of English or Welsh, according to their personal choice.

The revised corporate Scheme has been adopted by MOJ following public consultation and was approved by the Welsh Language Commissioner on 9 April 2018.

Each of MOJ’s main delivery bodies - Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS), Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS), the Legal Aid Agency (LAA), the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) has their own Welsh Language Scheme.

If you have any comments regarding the Scheme or would like to find out more about Welsh language in the MOJ please email dan.sweeney@justice.gov.uk.
