Taic Freumhan Coimhearsnachd

Taic Freumhan Coimhearsnachd is Bòrd na Gàidhlig’s primary fund for supporting community organisations in delivering projects to promote and increase the usage and learning of Gaelic at community level (both in-person and online).

For the first time, this year’s fund offers the opportunity to apply for up to 2 years’ worth of funding, for longer-term projects or those that are recurring annually. Applications are now open for projects taking place between April 2024 and August 2026.

This year we are 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

In your application we expect you to expand on how your project meets one or more of these aims as well as how it supports the actions of Bòrd na Gàidhlig’s Corporate Plan 2018-23 and the National Gaelic Language Plan 2018-23.
