Innovation & Learning

Through our work, we have learned that there are some issues which cannot be addressed solely by providing awards to individual charities. This may be because of a need for:

  • increased awareness or understanding of an issue or its cause
  • increased evidence or understanding of approaches or interventions which are successful in addressing an issue
  • increased capacity, skills or knowledge within the sector or individual charities to address the issue
  • a longer term, collaborative approach to address complexity of scale of the issue at a structural or system level

In response to these challenges, The Robertson Trust has developed our Innovation and Learning approach which seeks to improve our own understanding and knowledge around particular areas of need in Scotland and, in turn, to use this knowledge to help inform policy and practice.
