  • Bord Na Gaidhlig - Taic Freumhan Coimhearsnachd (speaking Gaelic in your community)

    Created: 16/11/2021

    The Taic Freumhan Coimhearsnachd funding programme was established to help community groups to undertake projects in support of the National Gaelic Language Plan.

    Applications may be made for funding which will be spent on projects taking place between April 2022 and August 2023.

    This year, the programme is particularly looking to support projects which:

    • Promote the use of Gaelic between speakers of different ages.
    • Provide young Gaelic speakers with the opportunity to use the language outwith school, college, or university
    • Focus on supporting people’s wellbeing through using Gaelic.
    • Encourage or support families to use Gaelic together at home.
    • Create opportunities for adults to learn Gaelic.
    • Promote Gaelic as part of local, national, or international events and celebrations, such as the Year of Scotland’s Stories 2022.

    Who can apply

    This fund is open to constituted organisations based in Scotland, or working in Scotland, that hope to deliver a project to promote the use of Gaelic within a given community. Social enterprises, schools, sporting, religious and arts groups have previously received assistance, but voluntary community organisations will be prioritised.

    How to apply

    Guidelines and the application form can be accessed via the funder's website.

    When to apply

    The 2022/23 scheme is now open until 15:00 on 18 January 2022.
