Over £460,000 awarded to 32 organisations across Scotland

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.

Please note that these are the final small awards to be made under our 2016-19 strategy. We will be launching our new strategy in September and are not able to respond to enquiries for potential new funding applications until this is in place.

Our new strategy will have a stronger focus on addressing poverty and trauma, their causes and impact. To ensure that you receive regular updates on this and on our funding programmes, please sign up to our mailing list or follow us on our social media channels. We have also provided some FAQs around our strategy renewal process which can be accessed here.
