Draft Gaelic Language Plan 2017-2022

South Ayrshire Council has developed its second Draft Gaelic Language Plan – and is looking for your feedback before 15th November 2017.

The draft plan has been developed in line with the requirements of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 and in conjunction with Bòrd na Gàidhlig (the Gaelic Board) and outlines how we will take forward the work to promote and use Gaelic throughout the area that commenced with the Council’s first Gaelic Language Plan in 2014.

It recognises the importance of Gaelic to our national culture and heritage and sets out how the Council will help raise awareness and secure, promote and develop the Gaelic language, heritage and culture for both current and future generations.

The Council’s draft plan also sets out how it will take forward work to support the objectives of the National Plan for Gaelic over the next five years, ensuring South Ayrshire’s communities, stakeholders and partners can recognise our progress to promote and use Gaelic.

To help us develop the Plan so that it reflects the views of our communities, please take a few minutes to complete our short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K5HSTFL
