Robertson House celebrates its 6th birthday

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.

Robertson House tenants celebrated the charity hub's sixth birthday today (Friday, 15th March).

The building opened its doors in 2013 as part of the Trust's commitment to support the third sector in ways which extend beyond traditional grant making. Robertson House offers high quality, low-cost office space and meeting room hire to the sector and has welcomed over 45,000 people through its doors over the last six years. Meanwhile, it will soon be joined by our new charity hub in Stirling, which is due to open later this year.
 
As part of the birthday celebrations, we have been busy on the hub's Twitter account, @RH_Hubs, showcasing the work of tenants past and present and, today, asked current tenants to tell us what they enjoy most about working at Robertson House. See what they had to say below!
