Social Investment in Scotland: One Year On

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.

This paper provides an overview of recent developments around PSPs and SIBs and with reference to the experiences of charity funders and third sector providers, assesses the extent to which the above issues have been addressed.

Finally, the paper concludes by making a number of recommendations that will better enable charitable funders to engage with alternative funding models going forward.
