Could community trusts have a unique role to play in supporting the use of Gaelic? That’s the question that ten communities have been working on over the past year, as part of a partnership project between Community Land Scotland and Bòrd na Gàidhlig. Community trusts were asked to come forward with ideas that built on their connections with the community. As this pilot project comes to an end, Community Land Scotland has heard many inspiring stories from groups – and we will hear three of those at this event:
Following the presentations, there will be a panel discussion with the presenters, and with speakers from Community Land Scotland and Bòrd na Gàidhlig, and a Q&A session in which attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
About the Gaelic Communities Fund
Community Land Scotland, with funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig, started the Gaelic Communities Fund in 2021. This funding provides support for community organisations to deliver projects that boost Gaelic, a key community asset, in a way that is appropriate for their area. Each project that has been funded is working towards the aims of the National Gaelic Language Plan so that Gaelic is to used more often, by more people, and in more situations.
