- Survey - Call for views - online response (Ulster-Scots)
The Department has launched a ‘Call for Views’ by way of an online survey to obtain input from the public and stakeholders on the published Ulster-Scots Language, Heritage and Culture Strategy Expert Advisory Panel’s Recommendations Report. The information gathered will help inform the development of a strategy for an Ulster-Scots Language, Heritage and Culture Strategy.
The report is presented in four key sections: Policy Analysis and Framework; Vision Statement; Actions; Implementation and Monitoring. Within the Actions section, the report has outlined a number of recommendations organised into 10 Action areas with each addressing particular areas of focus: Powers and Resources; Education; Academic Research & Development; Language; Institutional Establishment; Community and Cultural Life; Media; Our Human Rights; Connectedness; Economic Development. It is upon these key sections and action areas that the survey is seeking input.
Following analysis of the responses received, the Department for Communities will publish a report on the departmental website, which will outline feedback received and the next steps. This will also feed into the development process for a draft strategy.
