Dundee and Includem Raising Attainment Project - Summary

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 Dundee and Includem Raising Attainment Project project is working with S1-S3 pupils across all eight Dundee secondary schools, aiming to improve educational engagement, attainment and wellbeing.

Includem – a charity which provides intensive, personalised support for young people and their families – delivers enhanced support to pupils identified as having, or being at risk of, behavioural or wellbeing issues, and their families. Funded by The Robertson Trust and the Scottish Attainment Challenge Fund, the project is running from January 2017 – June 2019 and is being independently evaluated.

This summary guide introduces the project and highlights initial findings from the evaluation. A further update to these will be produced in the autumn.
