Good Practice in Working with Families Affected by Imprisonment

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 partnership with a number of the key third sector organisations that are currently working with families affected by imprisonment across Scotland, The Robertson Trust has produced a short paper providing information about the range of services that are available for these families and to highlighting examples of good practice in this area.

Improtantly the paper also highlights the challenges that these services are facing and makes a number of recommendations to help improve future work within this area.

The full report is available to read here.
