National Outcomes Review 2023
At the end of May 2023, Bòrd na Gàidhlig submitted a response to the National Outcomes Review 2023 public consultation. Points raised included:
The contribution of using and learning Gaelic is increasingly recognised in supporting wellbeing. That is because language and culture create self-esteem, nurture self-confidence, define identity and improve quality of life. This increases wellbeing for Gaelic users, learners, and supporters – who have great pride in the language and culture. Gaelic contributes positively to what these people think and feel about their lives. Bòrd na Gàidhlig has commissioned research to further quantify the benefits and opportunities for Scotland and wellbeing from the language and culture.
