The Cleachdi Initiative

Bòrd na Gàidhlig and partners developed the nationwide Cleachdi initiative to help Gaelic speakers and learners to be more visible to one another and to promote the use of Gaelic in public spaces.

As part of the campaign, the Cleachdi website was developed to encourage Gaelic speakers and learners to attend more Gaelic events. The website was built to advertise Gaelic clubs, events and groups and any other opportunity for people to come together and speak Gaelic.

The website is free to use for both individuals looking for events to attend and organisations and groups with events to advertise.

Social Media

Information about Gaelic events is also shared through the Cleachdi social media pages;


Order Cleachdi Resources

The Cleachdi resources, which are all available for free, are there to help Gaelic speakers and learners identify eachother and to show people they are willing to speak Gaelic. You can order up to 10 lanyards, badges and A5 posters, up to 20 stickers and 5 window stickers through the Cleachdi website.
