Beyond participation to Sport for Change

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.

In this article, our Innovation and Learning Manager, Linda Macdonald, provides some background to The Robertson Trust's Sport for Change work and looks at the role funders can play to support organisations to think about the changes they are bringing about through sport/physical activity and how they can evidence their impact more effectively.

The Robertson Trust is committed to working in this space in the coming years and supporting the ongoing development of the sporting sector as a powerful agent in reducing inequalities and supporting improved outcomes for individuals and communities.
