Social Bridging Finance

Social Bridging Finance

Social Bridging Finance is a new grant funding model being developed by The Robertson Trust. It has been designed with the intention of enabling public services to innovate and move to greater preventative spend through bringing together a working partnership of public sector, third sector and independent funders. As such, it aims to ensure the long-term sustainability of services delivered by the third sector which can evidence success. In 2019 the Robertson Trust is embarking on a journey to test the model and build our understanding of how it works in practice through three demonstration models.

By the end of the latest demonstrations, we expect to produce a suite of information and “how to” materials that can be used to implement this model to effect public sector reform across Scotland and further afield.

Please note we are not planning to commit any further funding to Social Bridging Finance projects for the foreseeable future, as we observe and learn from the existing trial of the model and subsequent evaluation.
