Our statement is now available.

The Robertson Trust is one of Scotland's leading grant-making funders and funds, supports and champions the work of Scotland's third sector, helping people experiencing poverty and trauma.

Responding to a ruling on claims brought against The Robertson Trust by the former chief executive, Kenneth Ferguson, Gerry McLaughlin, Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees, said:

“While we are disappointed by the Tribunal’s ruling, we need time to reflect on a long and complex judgement before making further comment.

“We are deeply saddened by some of the Tribunal’s findings. Our priority now is to turn our attention to reassure the organisations we fund – including many faith-based organisations - that we will continue to support and work alongside them as, together, we work towards helping people and places facing poverty and trauma in Scotland."
