DCAL – Ulster-Scots Strategy — Your views are needed!!!

Subject: DCAL – Ulster-Scots Strategy — Your views are needed!!!
To: Iain Carlisle <IainC@ulster-scots.com>

Dear All,

As you know the Department of Culture Arts & Leisure have produce a strategy for Ulster-Scots which is currently open for Public Consultation until 27th November.


The Ulster-Scots Community Network (USCN) are keen to encourage as many Ulster-Scots groups as possible to respond  to the consultation. This is the only chance our community really have to influence future policy decisions. 

The consultation is open to the entire Ulster-Scots community and other interested parties – so your views are important and will be very much appreciated.


We at USCN fully appreciate that many Ulster-Scots groups are effectively managed by a few volunteers – and as such, responding to weighty policy documents is a time consuming and often thankless job.

With this in mind – we have attached our planned response – with which you may or may not agree.

Groups are welcome to use some or all of the material from our response – or to simply drop an email to info@ulster-scots.com stating that you agree with the position adopted by USCN – this will greatly add to the weight attached to our response.


Please find attached a copy of the  DCAL  Consultation and the planned response from Ulster-Scots Community Network –  I would again encourage as many of you as possible to make a response in one of the ways outlined above as we believe this is an important opportunity to make your views known.


With best regards,
