New version of Trauma, Loss and Bereavement report launched

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.

Produced by the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice, the new resource includes key messages from the original study and aims to make the research more accessible to young people. It will be made available at HMYOI Polmont and shared via personal officers.

The original research, funded by the The Robertson Trust and the Scottish Prison Service (SPS), assessed a range of developments implemented by HMYOI Polmont that worked directly with young men who had experienced trauma, bereavement and loss, including the Barnardo's Scotland 'Here and Now' pilot service.
