The Robertson Trust

Our strategy sets out why we are focusing on helping to further understand and alleviate the effects of poverty and trauma on our society, and how we hope to do this.

It underpins all our activities, including the funding we offer, and guides the way we work. It builds on our experience over six decades and on our strong relationships with others across the third, public and private sectors.

Garfield Weston Foundation

From small community groups, to large national institutions, the Foundation’s aim is to support organisations that have effective solutions to helping those most in need.

The Orcome Trust

The Orcome Trust is a small charity originally based at Newhall House in Midlothian where the Trust was set up in the 1960s by the Misses Maclagan, the then owners of Newhall Estate.

The present Trustees selected from the local community have varied experience, knowledge and interests.

Souter Charitable Trust

Set up by Sir Brian and Lady Elizabeth Souter, the charitable trust assists projects engaged in the relief of human suffering in the UK and overseas – particularly, but not exclusively, those promoting spiritual welfare.

Ponton House Trust

The Trust's charitable fund was established in August 1993 following the sale of Ponton House, a former boys' home. The Trustees determined to move from the outdated residential support service for disaffected boys to a broader role of supporting young people in need in the Edinburgh area. It has been making grants since then, distributing over £1 million over this period.
