The Cornish Language Partnership (Cornish: Keskowethyans an Taves Kernewek) is a representative body that was set up in Cornwall, United Kingdom in 2005 to promote and develop the use of the Cornish language in Cornwall.[2] It operates within Cornwall Council.

It is a public and voluntary sector partnership[3] and consists of representatives from various Cornish language societies, Cornish cultural and economic organisations and local government in Cornwall.[4] The organisation is part-funded by the European Union's Objective One program, by the United Kingdom government's Department for Communities and Local Government and by Cornwall Council.[5]

The Partnership is the chief regulator of the Standard Written Form of Cornish, an orthography that was published in 2008 with the intention of uniting the previous conflicting orthographies, and for use on road signs, in official documents, and in school examinations.[6]
