What’s new at Robertson House

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 now welcomes over 7000 visitors through its doors each year from organisations of all backgrounds and sizes.

As well as the 25 Third Sector tenants who call the building home, many external organisations are making use of our high quality, low cost meeting room space and hospitality offers to host professional, easily-accessible events in the heart of Glasgow.

With this in mind, it’s been a busy few months at the House as we’ve sought to implement a number of upgrades in response to the growing digital needs of our customers and, in turn, ensure we continue to support Scotland’s Third Sector the best we can. These have included:


Ground Floor Meeting Rooms

As part of a wider IT upgrade, our two spacious ground floor meeting rooms have been installed with hardwired PCs and flat screen kits for presentations and video conferencing. Each has also been rewired to create a user-friendly control panel that will work with all standard connections and allow you to use your own laptop, thus ensuring setup is professional and stress free.


The Robertson Trust conference room is available to hireConference Room

Our conference room, which can be used for events for 10-40 people, is in the final stages of a thorough upgrade which has included a general renovation of the room as well as the installation of higher spec digital conferencing facilities. A key development has been the installation of new audio and video streaming equipment, which will allow hosted events to be broadcast or recorded live for online audiences.


Cafe/Hospitality

Our popular on-site cafe continues to be enjoyed by tenants and visitors alike and we have made a number of changes based on customer feedback and data. With a daily changing menu, we’re now introducing dessert day on a Thursday, as well as hot meals on a Tuesday and breakfast rolls on a Friday. The cafe continues to offer hospitality to our conference and meeting rooms, but is also open to visitors to enjoy at their leisure. Whether you’re a current tenant, attending an all-day event or simply making a flying visit, the cafe is a lively, informal space that’s open to all.


If you are interested in finding out more about any of our nine meeting rooms, which can accommodate 4-40 people, then please visit the Facilities section of our website to enquire about availability.

Rooms can be booked between 8.30am-5.30pm Monday to Friday, at which time our reception staff will be on hand to welcome your guests and attendees. You can also hire our spaces individually or in combination to suit your needs, and take advantage of our hospitality options should you need.
