Announcement of tender award - Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

We are pleased to announce that, further to a recent procurement process, the contract for delivery of the Supporting Strong and Effective Organisations tender has been awarded to the Change Makers Partnership.   The Change Makers Partnership is a unique collaboration between the three key national Scottish social enterprise organisations (CEIS, Social Enterprise Academy and Firstport) supporting the enterprising Third Sector, two highly respected organisations specifically supporting the sport sector (Spartans Community Football Academy and Movement) and an accomplished academic institution (The University of Edinburgh).

The Supporting Strong and Effective Organisations tender is a part of the Changing Lives through Sport and Physical Activity Programme, a £1.8m partnership between The Robertson Trust, Scottish Government, sportscotland and Spirit of 2012.  Further information on the programme can be found here
