Gaelic Language Plan
Forestry and Land Scotland recognises that Gaelic is an important part of Scotland's heritage, national identity and cultural life. We are committed to ensuring that Gaelic has a sustainable future in Scotland.
Over the last year, we have been working with Bòrd na Gàidhlig to develop a new Gaelic Language Plan. In line with other public bodies, our plan sets out how we will demonstrate three key principles in relation to Gaelic Language:
- The first is Equal Respect, securing the status of the Gaelic language as an official language of Scotland, commanding equal respect to the English language.
- The second is Active Offer, making an active offer of our Gaelic services to our employees and the public.
- The third is Mainstreaming, ensuring that opportunities for the public and our staff to use Gaelic are normalised.
This will support the National Gaelic Language Plan 2018-23 aim that Gaelic is used more often, by more people and in a wider range of situations.
