Seeing and Shifting the Roots of Opinion

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.

What the public thinks and feels about the concept of care matters hugely if outcomes for care-experienced young people are to improve. 

In partnership with The Robertson Trust, Life Changes Trust and CELCIS, the FrameWorks Institute has produced a new report which aims to answer key questions about public perceptions of care experience and the concept of care in Scotland by mapping the gaps between the care sector and public understanding.

It is hoped the report will stimulate and inform debate and all partners look forward to working with colleagues and care-experienced people in the testing of its recommendations as we start to build a new narrative about the system and the people who experience it.

You can download the full report here. You can also download the summary report here.
