Scots Organisations

Scots Organisations

The Scottish Government provides direct funding for two Scots organisations.  In 2009 the Scottish Government assumed responsibility for direct funding of Scottish Language Dictionaries and the Scots Language Centre.  These organisations were previously funded by  the Scottish Arts Council.  By providing direct funding, the Scottish Government put these organisations on a secure financial footing.
