We were delighted to receive the news today that The Robertson Trust has awarded us a grant of £50,000 towards our Glengoyne Lodge redevelopment project.
The grant brings us another step closer to our £250,000 target for the project, which aims to create a centre of excellence for inclusive adventure on the outskirts of Glasgow.
The Robertson Trust has funded the project with the aims of reducing social isolation for young disabled people, as well as increasing their skills, confidence and independence through short breaks at the improved centre. Through this additional respite care parents and carers will have increased resilience which in turn will have a long-term positive impact on families and young people.
Our Chair, Elaine Ferguson said:
“We are delighted that The Robertson Trust has chosen to support our project with such a substantial grant. We look forward to working with them as we move the plans forward and raise the remainder of the funds to make a redeveloped Glengoyne Lodge a reality”.
The Robertson Trust is currently the largest independent grant-making trust in Scotland and has a vision to improve the quality of life and realise the potential of people and communities in Scotland – inspired by the example of our founders, the Robertson Sisters.
