The Guernsey Language Commission - Speaking up for our Language Créyaïz, ach'vaïz
The States Strategic Plan, reaffirmed by the States in 2013, requires that "the government of Guernsey aims to protect and improve the island's environment, unique cultural identity and rich heritage." The Guernsey Language is close to the top of the list of priorities in terms of our environment, identity and heritage.
The Guernsey Language Commission was set up to raise awareness of the local patois, Guernésiais and to assist the existing groups and individuals that already do much to celebrate and teach the language.
The Guernsey Language Commission is funded by a grant from the States but also seeks support and sponsorship from the private sector and local individuals.
