New fund to tackle poverty and trauma in Scotland
One of Scotland’s largest independent funders, The Robertson Trust has published details of its new fund for large organisations.
Partners in Change is available to organisations working in Scotland with an annual income of more than £2 million.
It will offer funding of between £50k and £150k per year, for up to three years, to a range of organisations with a charitable purpose including:
- Housing associations
- Credit unions
- Asset-locked Community Interest Companies
- Registered charities
Partners in Change will support work which aims to fundamentally change how services and support for people experiencing poverty and/or trauma are designed and delivered, particularly in light of the impact of the Covid pandemic. The organisations that receive the funding will undertake work across the Trust’s thematic focus areas: educational and work pathways, financial security and emotional wellbeing/relationships and the interactions between them.
Applicants will also focus their work on one or more of the Trust’s priority demographic groups, which include: children, women, disabled people, people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, asylum seekers, refugees and people experiencing severe and multiple disadvantage.
The closing date for expressions of interest is 5pm on 3rd June 2021.
