The research study builds on the legacy of the Gaelic Crisis in the Vernacular Community research through exploring community agency and participation factors relevant to how Gaelic development interventions engage with the Gaelic vernacular community. In particular, the study considers policy interventions which can be aligned more productively to supporting the critical role Gaelic-speaking communities have in determining and securing their own sociolinguistic and socioeconomic futures. This report is based on consultations and a survey in two rural Gaelic vernacular districts, one in west Lewis and one in the north area of Skye.
