Scots Language Centre Centre for the Scots Leid

Promoting Scots

The Scots Language Centre is one of a number of organisations that exist to further the interests of the Scots language and its speakers. In this section you will find links to the key bodies. 

You can also read more about the Scottish Parliament and how Scots has been discussed and debated there.

This part of the site also contains sections on the Scottish Government's Ministerial Working Group, policy papers on Scots and the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages. This is a rapidly developing area of policy and new material is added regularly to this section of the site.

Below you will find a Scots version, in PDF form, of the recent Girona Manifesto on Linguistic Rights, issued in 2011.
