Language complaint against charity

The civil rights group Cefn has made an official complaint over what it claimed was the
anti-Welsh language stance of Epilepsy Wales’ chief officer.

In a letter to the Welsh Language Board, the organisation Cefn said a Caernarfon man
with epilepsy had complained about the way a help group was set up.

Tim Evans, 25, claimed only English-language posters and literature was available and
that he was treated with indifference when he asked for bilingual material.

But the chief executive of Epilepsy Wales, David Dudley, claimed Mr.Evans was
discourteous to his staff, making them feel like outsiders. He said the group operated a
bilingual policy wherever possible.
