Camarthenshire Mentrau Iaith will not by cut by £50,000
Plans to cut funding to Welsh language support groups in Carmarthenshire by half have been rejected by councillors.
The £100,000 given by the county council to Mentrau Iaith, including Menter Cwm Gwendraeth, near Llanelli, will be reduced by just 10%.
A council committee had voted to cut the funds by £50,000, but the move was rejected by the full council.
The local authority is considering a range of options in a bid to save £20m over the next three years.
The language initiative groups were set up to support the Welsh language and to organise after-school clubs and parenting classes.
They receive European funding but organisers say the council money is crucial.
