Ers hynny mae Cymdeithas yr Iaith wedi cyflwyno llythyron agored, llunio siarter alwadau i Gymreigio’r Cyngor a chynnal rali er mwyn rhoi cyfle i bobl leisio’u barn. Dywedodd Matthew Rempes, aelod lleol sydd wedi helpu i lunio’r daflen: “Mae’n arwyddocaol ein bod ni’n lansio’r daflen mewn g’yl i ddysgwyr – beth yw diben gwersi Cymraeg os nad yw pobl yn gallu ei defnyddio o ddydd i ddydd ac yn eu gwaith? Fel un o brif gyflogwyr a darparwyr gwasanaethau y sir byddai’n rhoi cymaint mwy o werth i’r Gymraeg a hyder i bobl y sir – dysgwyr a siaradwyr rhugl, i’w defnyddio os byddai’r Cyngor yn dweud eu bod nhw am symud i weithio yn Gymraeg. “Fe wnaethon ni gwrdd gyda’r Cyngor yn ddiweddar i drafod hyn ond roedd hi’n amlwg nad oedd gyda nhw gynllun o ran gwneud mwy yn Gymraeg – hynny sydd ar goll. Gobeithio bydd yr holl enghreifftiau byddan nhw’n cael yn dangos iddyn nhw fod pobl eisiau’r gwasanaethau Cymraeg hyn.” Ymysg enghreifftiau sydd wedi dod i law hyd yma mae llythyr uniaith Saesneg i gydnabod derbyn ffurflen i gofrestru plentyn mewn ysgol Gymraeg; nad yw staff y canolfannau galw yn gallu ateb ymholiadau yn Gymraeg ac nad oes gwersi nofio ar gael yn Gymraeg. Ychwanegodd Matthew Rempes: “Er ein bod ni wedi bod yn gofyn i’r Cyngor wneud sawl peth mae gyda ni i gyd ein rhan i chwarae wrth gryfhau’r Gymraeg yn y sir. Mae’r ffurflen hon yn un ffordd rwydd i bobl roi eu sylwadau a’u enghreifftiau ac i ni ddangos i’r Cyngor fod pobl eisiau’r gwasanaethau yma yn Gymraeg.”

Randge of topis for safeguarding week

Published

on

Hazardous co-sleeping with infants and adults who self-neglect are
among topics for discussion highlighted in National Safeguarding
Week in Mid and West Wales which runs from next Monday (4 th
November).

A wide-ranging programme is taking place throughout the week
across Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Powys
including conferences, engagement events and workshops.

The programme has been co-ordinated by CWMPAS and CYSUR,
the Mid and West Wales Regional Safeguarding Board.

A highlight of the week is the Board’s annual conference at
Pembrokeshire College in Haverfordwest on Thursday, 14 th
November.

The keynote address is being delivered by Dr Eileen Munro, Emeritus
Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics.

Dr Munro is the author of the Munro Review of Child Protection – a
child-centred system which made a number of recommendations to
reform the child protection system from being over-bureaucratised to
one that keeps a focus on the child.

The conference will highlight key achievements across the region in
implementing the Signs of Safety approach to working with families.

Signs of Safety is a more inclusive, solution-focused approach which
encourages families to find their own solutions to the challenges they
may be experiencing.

During the week, the Safeguarding Board will also seek to raise
awareness of circumstances in which co-sleeping becomes unsafe,
as well as the dangers of self-neglect and hoarding.

Technology will also be a theme as the Board formally launches its
newly designed website and enhanced social media presence in
order to improve awareness of its work and functions.

The new All-Wales Protection Procedures is also due to launch while
Dyfed Powys Police will follow a comprehensive programme of
activities to engage schools and communities, focussing on a variety
of themes such as sexting, cyber-crime and exploitation.

Other events taking place in Pembrokeshire include the Junior
Safeguarding Conference during which secondary school pupils will
receive a safeguarding module devised by Pembrokeshire’s
Safeguardians. There will also be a County Lines workshop to be
facilitated by Fearless, a branch of Crimestoppers.

Carmarthenshire County Council will be facilitating consultation
with partner agencies to finalise the draft regional self-neglect policy.
Hywel Dda University Health Board will also hold a Learning Event
related to this theme as part of Safeguarding Week activities.

Events taking place across Powys include the formal launch of new
procedures relating to deprivation of liberty safeguards, as well as
training across Health Boards on a range of adult safeguarding issues
delivered jointly with Trading Standards and Police.

TESTUNAU AMRYWIOL AR GYFER YR WYTHNOS
DDIOGELU

Mae cyd-gysgu peryglus gyda babanod, ac oedolion sy’n hunan-
esgeuluso ymhlith testunau i’w trafod y tynnir sylw atynt yn yr
Wythnos Ddiogelu Genedlaethol yng Nghanolbarth a Gorllewin
Cymru sy’n rhedeg o ddydd Llun nesaf (4 Tachwedd).

Mae rhaglen eang yn cael ei chynnal trwy gydol yr wythnos ledled Sir
Benfro, Ceredigion, Sir Gaerfyrddin a Phowys yn cynnwys
cynadleddau, digwyddiadau ymgysylltu a gweithdai.

Cydgysylltwyd y rhaglen gan CWMPAS a CYSUR, Bwrdd Diogelu
Rhanbarthol Canolbarth a Gorllewin Cymru.

Un o uchafbwyntiau’r wythnos yw cynhadledd flynyddol y Bwrdd yng
Ngholeg Sir Benfro yn Hwlffordd ddydd Iau, 14 Tachwedd.

Cyflwynir y prif anerchiad gan Dr Eileen Munro, Athro Emeritws Polisi
Cymdeithasol yn Ysgol Economeg Llundain.

Dr Munro yw awdur Munro Review of Child Protection – a child-
centred system, a wnaeth nifer o argymhellion i ddiwygio’r system
amddiffyn plant o fod yn system or-fiwrocrataidd i un sy’n cynnal
ffocws ar y plentyn.

Bydd y gynhadledd yn tynnu sylw at y prif gyflawniadau ar draws y
rhanbarth o ran gweithredu’r ymagwedd Arwyddion Diogelwch wrth
weithio gyda theuluoedd.

Mae Arwyddion Diogelwch yn ymagwedd fwy cynhwysol, yn
canolbwyntio ar atebion, sy’n annog teuluoedd i ddod o hyd i’w
hatebion eu hunain i’r heriau y gallant fod yn eu hwynebu.

Yn ystod yr wythnos, bydd y Bwrdd Diogelu yn mynd ati hefyd i
gynyddu ymwybyddiaeth o amgylchiadau lle mae cyd-gysgu yn
anniogel, yn ogystal â pheryglon hunan-esgeuluso a chelcio.

Bydd technoleg yn thema hefyd wrth i’r Bwrdd lansio’i wefan yn ffurfiol
ar ei newydd gwedd, ynghyd â gwell presenoldeb yn y cyfryngau
cymdeithasol er mwyn gwella ymwybyddiaeth o’i waith a’i
swyddogaethau.

Bydd fersiwn newydd Gweithdrefnau Amddiffyn Cymru Gyfan yn cael
ei lansio hefyd, a bydd Heddlu Dyfed Powys yn dilyn rhaglen
gynhwysfawr o weithgareddau i ymgysylltu ag ysgolion a
chymunedau, gan ganolbwyntio ar amrywiaeth o themâu fel secstio,
seiberdroseddu a chamfanteisio.

Mae digwyddiadau eraill sy’n cael eu cynnal yn Sir Benfro yn
cynnwys y Gynhadledd Diogelu Plant Iau lle bydd disgyblion ysgolion
uwchradd yn derbyn modiwl diogelu a ddyfeisiwyd gan Warchodwyr
Sir Benfro. Hefyd, bydd gweithdy Llinellau Cyffuriau yn cael ei gynnal
gan Fearless, sef cangen o Crimestoppers.

Bydd Cyngor Sir Caerfyrddin yn hwyluso ymgynghoriad gydag
asiantaethau partner i roi’r wedd derfynol ar y polisi hunan-esgeuluso
rhanbarthol drafft. Hefyd, bydd Bwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Hywel Dda yn
cynnal Digwyddiad Dysgu yn gysylltiedig â’r thema hon fel rhan o
weithgareddau’r Wythnos Ddiogelu.

Mae digwyddiadau sy’n cael eu cynnal ledled Powys yn cynnwys
lansio gweithdrefnau newydd yn ffurfiol yn ymwneud â threfniadau
diogelu wrth amddifadu o ryddid, yn ogystal â hyfforddiant ar draws
Byrddau Iechyd ar amrywiaeth o faterion diogelu oedolion a gyflwynir
ar y cyd â Safonau Masnach a’r Heddlu.

Communities in Ceredigion will get extra support

Published

COMMUNITIES in Ceredigion will get extra support as they take part in a census rehearsal The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has appointed a census engagement manager to support Ceredigion residents help rehearse the census this October.

Ceredigion was chosen as one of just four areas for the census rehearsal, which will enable the ONS to test some of the systems and processes it has put in place ahead of the digital-first 2021 Census.

David Lloyd Roberts, the area’s census engagement manager, will help organisations, charities, faith groups and community leaders within the county to raise awareness of the census rehearsal and the value to local residents in taking part.

David, who grew up on a hill farm in Pontrhydfendigaid studied history and Welsh history at Aberystwyth University before embarking on a career within the community as a trading standards officer. He went on to manage the local authority’s trading standards, licensing and community warden functions.

He said: “I’ve worked in local government in Ceredigion for over 34 years and served as a school governor for 10 years, so I like to think I know the area and its people well.

“This is a really exciting opportunity to work with community groups and residents to test out the processes to make sure everything works as well as possible and to help ensure everyone in Ceredigion get their voices heard.”

People in each of the rehearsal areas, Ceredigion, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Carlisle, will be asked to complete a questionnaire about those living in their household on 13 October 2019.

The rehearsal will be primarily online, with help for those who need it. Residents will be invited to take part later this year.

Director of census operations, Pete Benton, said: “The census helps inform vital public services such as the number of children’s school places, hospital and GP services and social care provision in local areas.

“As the census only takes place every ten years it is important we hold an operational rehearsal to ensure that all our processes run smoothly.

“The people of Ceredigion who take part will all be helping to ensure the overall success of the 2021 Census.”

The ONS’s recommendations for the next census were published in a government White Paper in December 2018.

The 2021 Census will, for the first time, collect information on veterans of the UK Armed Forces. This enables monitoring of the Armed Forces covenant – the deal between the country and those who served it.

And it is proposed that there will also be a new voluntary question on sexual orientation for those aged 16 and over. In addition to the usual question on being male or female, there will also be a voluntary question on gender identity for those aged 16 and over.

Everyone across the UK, including those living outside of the four rehearsal areas will be asked to take part in the actual census in 2021. More information will be made available nearer the time.

Community leaders in and around Ceredigion can find out more about the rehearsal by calling David on 07458109340 or emailing david.roberts01@field.census.gov.uk.
