Bòrd na Gàidhlig has submitted a response to the Scottish Parliament consultation on the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill.

Points raised in the response include the following:

“Scottish Government’s design of a National Care Service should reflect its existing policies and commitments regarding the Gaelic language.”

“The proposed law should include a specific statement that the National Care Service will provide a service for Gaelic speakers of any age through appropriate staffing, visibility and use of the language in locations which are appropriate and accessible to families.”
