Christine began working for The Robertson Trust sixteen years ago. As Head of Innovation and Learning, Christine leads the team which focuses on building knowledge of what approaches work best to address specific challenges being faced by individuals and communities in Scotland. We do this to improve the impact and effectiveness of our own grant making and to have the knowledge to inform and influence policy and practice. We also make Partnership Awards in collaboration with other independent funders and national and local government. Existing areas are criminal justice, Sport for Change, vulnerable girls and women and realizing the potential of vulnerable young people. Christine is also a Trustee of Outward Bound and a volunteer with Contact the Elderly.
NPC Ignites conference session:
B2: Innovations in funding
How are funders responding to the shifting boundaries of the state? What innovations are we seeing from funders? A panel of leading funders, large and small, will debate where funders are getting it right, where they aren’t, and what the sector can learn from those who are trying to push the boundaries.
