The new Guernsey Language Commission was set up to help save Guernsey's own language, Guernésiais, by raising awareness of the language and assisting the existing groups and individuals that already do so much to celebrate and teach the language.

The States Strategic Plan, reaffirmed by the States of Guernsey early in 2013, requires that "the government of Guernsey aims to protect and improve the island's environment, unique cultural identity and rich heritage." The Plan also recognises that this requires "improved awareness of the culture and identity of Guernsey".  The Commission believes that preserving and promoting Guernsey's language is an integral part of this priority.
