We are trying to raise £10,000 towards the cost of a new minibus. Visit our Crowdfunder page here to support us.
We would like to purchase a Ford Transit (17 seats) or similar minibus. This will cost approximately £36,000. We have committed to spending some of our own charitable resources and also intend to apply for grants. Being able to say that the wider community was able to contribute £10,000 would make all the difference.
We need a minibus in order to expand our work with young people and keep rental costs to a minimum. The more we keep within the Gaelic economy, the more we can spend on youth work. With a minibus we can offer more activities, programmes and events for the young people of Scotland.

Gaelic Development - Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG) is a social enterprise which provides Gaelic services throughout Scotland. We are involved in many different areas including Young people and Events, Iomairtean Gàidhlig, Education & Parents, and many other areas. Browse our website for news, information, application forms and employment opportunities.
Our programme for young people offers a variety of events in various places. These events are fun and a great way to strengthen young people's Gaelic. We also offer certificated awards such as the John Muir Award and places on our annual Sradagan camp are always in high demand.
We are heavily involved in the Iomairtean Gàidhlig. Our work in this area includes the general coordination of activity and the delivery of youth work and support for the Parental Advisory Scheme. We work closely with the community and other Gaelic organisations.
Our popular employment opportunities page is the best place on the web to find out about the various Gaelic jobs on offer.
Comunn na Gàidhlig itself was established in 1984 and campaigned for secure status for Gaelic over many years. Our main office is in Inverness although we are active throughout the country and are flexible in our approach. If we can assist an individual, community or organisation to use Gaelic we will do.
The John Muir Award at CnaG allows young people to take part in an exciting programme through the medium of Gàidhlig and achieve a recognised award. The award is based upon young people choosing a wild place and then exploring, conserving and sharing that place with others.
Comunn na Gàidhlig supports Iomairtean Gàidhlig (Gaelic Initiatives) throughout the country. In addition to general coordination, we also deliver work to support the promotion of Gaelic Medium Education and support for Young people and Events. There are also other partners in each Iomairt area, drawn from the Gaelic organisations, who implement projects in their own areas of specialism.
