Communications & Logo

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.

The ability to communicate your messages at the right time to the right people is becoming an increasingly important skill for Third Sector organisations.

Doing this effectively can produce a number of benefits, including:

  • Raising awareness of the good work you are doing
  • Creating discussion around the issues that matter most to you
  • Keeping your stakeholders abreast of your progress and latest developments

With this in mind, The Robertson Trust has produced a communications toolkit that may be useful for your organisation. It provides tips and practical advice for raising the profile of your work and best practice advice for writing media releases, inviting journalist to events, arranging photography and video and generating a social medi abuzz around your work.

If you have any further questions or suggestions for the toolkit then please do not hesitate to contact us at

If you wish to use The Robertson Trust logo, please refer to our Logo Guidelines for information on use. Please contact us at to receive our full logo pack.

Our logo may be used on materials produced by stakeholders that have received funding or support from The Robertson Trust. 

If you are a current Robertson Trust grantholder, simply tag us on Twitter, @RobertsonTrust, with a picture of the project and we will endeavour to share with our followers.
