Response to HIE 5 Year Strategy

Bòrd na Gàidhlig has submitted a response to Highlands & Islands Enterprise’s new 5 year strategic plan.  This is a follow up survey.

Points raise by Bòrd na Gàidhlig include:

RE SWOT: There are no references to the specific challenges faced by islands. That is in the context of the National Islands Plan. Within the Plan, Scottish Government recognises the importance of the Gaelic language to many island communities, and the importance of the Gaelic speaking island communities to the survival and sustainability of Gaelic in Scotland. The Plan includes commitments throughout to supporting individuals, communities, and organisations in Gaelic speaking island communities in their use of Gaelic.
