Gaelic Language Plan Consultation launched by Scottish Fire and Rescue Service

  Publish Date:

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) has opened a consultation on its Draft Gaelic Language Plan 2022 – 2025 to widen access and promote the Gaelic language across the organisation.

The consultation seeks the views of key stakeholders, communities and staff on the second draft of the Service’s Gaelic Language Plan which has been prepared in line with the Framework of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005. 

Liz Barnes, Director of People and Organisational Development is inviting people to take part and help influence the way the SFRS integrates Gaelic into its operations and working practices.

She said “Gaelic belongs to the whole of Scotland and we would like to develop the understanding and use of the language, its history and heritage.

“You can help shape the future of Gaelic in the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

“It’s easy to take part. Respondents are invited to answer a short survey and give their views on the Plan. Responses to the consultation will be used to shape our approach and inform the final Plan.”

The Service has a legal responsibility to have a plan and it wants to build on its existing plan to support the aim of increasing the use of the language by more people, in a wider range of situations.

The consultation will run for six weeks from 17 January to 27 February 2022 and can be accessed here https://firescotland.citizenspace.com/equality-and-diversity/draft-gaelic-language-plan-2022-2025/.
