Community Investment Fund - Funding to support young Gaelic leaders

The Social Enterprise Academy was awarded a Community Investment Fund grant of £2,321 earlier this year for running two residential training courses for 15 Young Gaelic Leaders to develop their leadership skills.

The first 3-day residential session was held in January at Grogarry Lodge, South Uist, whilst the next 3-day residential will take place at Borve House Hotel in April. The course is run entirely in Gaelic and by working with the young people to co-create a programme that meets their needs, they hope that this training will act as an intervention to develop a new generation of Young Gaelic Leaders.

Iain Boyd, Gaelic Medium Business Development Officer, shared: “Social Enterprise Academy Scotland is delighted to have received funding for this programme from a number of organisations, including Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn. This enables us to add value to the great work already being done by young Gaelic speakers across the Highlands & Islands. We look forward to offering new programmes in the future, which bring additional opportunities for Gaelic speakers.”
