Gaelic Language Policy

Recognising a duty to secure the future of this language, the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 was created and aims to secure the status of Gaelic as an official language of Scotland commanding equal respect to English. From this Act came the National Gaelic Language Plan, which has three main aims: increasing the use of Gaelic; increasing the learning of Gaelic; promoting a positive image of Gaelic. This document outlines Trust activities which help towards achieving these aims and keeping the language alive.
