Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG) today launches its new website at www.cnag.org which will make it easier for communities, organisations and companies to access information on Gaelic opportunities and CnaG’s services. This new enhanced and attractive website also provides information on activities for young people, business and students. Additionally there is dedicated content on Gaelic Education and news.
Recognising the diversity of CnaG’s work, the new website is structured on the various areas of the organisation’s work. There is also a Gaelic blog, written by CnaG staff with posts about their work and general Gaelic matters.
With CnaG organising a wide variety of youth activities, the new website provides up to date information for participants and parents.
Companies and community organisations are also able to access information on CnaG’s funding schemes on the new site.
The new site also features maps which show the location of Gaelic signs, primary schools with Gaelic and where the CnaG funding is awarded to.
Gaelic related job adverts was one of the most popular sections of the old CnaG site and the organisation has continued with this feature in the new site. It is intended to expand this service in the future.
Donald Macneill, CnaG’s Chief Executive said: "Websites come and go, and perhaps there's no great story in that, the key thing however is that we are trying to make it as easy as possible for people to get information on the different opportunities and events we run in Gaelic, and about our work in general. That's why these changes are worthwhile, to try and ensure that this gateway to CnaG's work is attractive, clear and as easy to use as possible."
As would be expected in these socially connected days, the new site features social integration with Facebook.
CnaG intends to add more sections to its site over the coming months.
