Small Grants Fund 2024

The Seachdain na Gàidhlig ‘Small Grants Fund’ is supported by Bòrd na Gàidhlig and offers grants of up to £500 for individuals, community groups and organisations. The fund aims to support activity during Seachdain na Gàidhlig 2024 (February 19th-25th) and assist in the development and delivery of community events that celebrate the Gaelic language. Our theme for 2024 is ‘Do Chànan. Do Chothrom / Your Language. Your Opportunity’ and we are looking for projects / events that have this theme embedded at their core.

Applicants should demonstrate how their proposed activity will promote use and development of Gaelic within their local community and are encouraged to seek income from other sources and support in-kind where possible. Applicants should bear in mind that funding is limited, and the Fund may not be able to support all eligible applications. 

We will consider applications of any kind and are keen to ensure a wide geographical spread of the funds available. Examples of events and activity that could be considered are: pop-up Gàidhealtachd, languages cafes, online gaming, school projects, cèilidhs and concerts, craft groups.
