Partnership Award in Focus: Re-framing Care for Young People

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.

As part of our Innovation and Learning theme, Improving the Life Chances of Children and Young People, this project is phase one of a three-part programme to ‘reframe’ how care for young people in Scotland is conceptualised and presented in public and political discourse.

It aims to facilitate improved public understanding of the issues affecting vulnerable children and families, and of the policy solutions available.

In partnership with The Robertson Trust, Life Changes Trust, and CELCIS (University of Strathclyde), this initial phase is being led by the FrameWorks Institute and will conclude in March 2018. You can watch a full video interview with FramesWorks CEO, Nat Kendall-Taylor, talking about this project below or view answers to individual questions using the following links:
