Gaelic Business and Economic Development (360G-BNG-2324_3045)


This project will implement some of the key research recommendations for the business community from the Gaelic Economy in Glasgow report (2021) funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig and Glasgow City Council. It will focus primarily on Message 3: supporting the application and use of Gaelic in business, social and community activities across Glasgow.The council's Gaelic Development Officer and Economic Development Managers will convene a group of business and economic development colleagues to review the research recommendations and produce a Gaelic business and economy action plan. As the research was completed during COVID, there is a need to review and update the information gathered about Glasgow's businesses.We will produce and distribute a survey of businesses across the city, focusing on key sectors like the creative industries, hospitality and tourism. This will promote awareness and interest and help us determine their use of Gaelic and their Gaelic language skills. The survey will identify businesses with an existing Gaelic identity, determine interest in a Gaelic Glasgow business “brand”, a Gaelic business club, and an SME business Gaelic fund for Gaelic language signage, promotional materials and Gaelic skills training.The project will target a range of businesses across the city to enhance their awareness and knowledge of Gaelic. By working with business focused colleagues within the council, we will raise their awareness of the council's Gaelic Language Plan commitments, and using their databases and business links we will have an updated record of those businesses with an interest in Gaelic and a plan to deliver Gaelic products and services.
