15.08.2018 Housing List for three bedroom houses within the Gannochy Estate

The General Housing List for our three bedroom properties has been closed since 2016, however we are pleased to announce that we will be opening this list for a limited period from Wednesday 15 August 2018 until Monday 3 September 2018.

This will allow us to start the process of assessing and scoring applications in line with our priorities and criteria.

If you wish to apply you must read carefully the housing information which outlines the expectations, priorities and criteria and then complete the attached Housing Application form, which must be returned to us no later than Monday 17th September 2018 for it to be considered.  Please note that we will receive far more applications than there are houses available.

Please also note:  This application form must not be used to express an interest in our new housing expansion.  Applications for these houses, outlining the criteria and priorities, will be available in early Spring 2019.  If you have already registered your interest, you will have been advised that we will contact you again to let you know the timescales.  If you have not registered your interest then please contact the Gannochy Trust office and we will take some basic details from you.

You will also be able to follow the progress of the new build at

28.03.2018 Funding Strategy

From November 2017 to February 2018, the Gannochy Trust carried out an evaluation of our current funding strategy (June 2015 to May 2018) with the aim of setting a new three year plan from 1 July 2018.   We commissioned Wren and Greyhound, a consultancy company, to help us to demonstrate the impact of our funding, identify the learning from each programme and to assess the programmes' processes and effectiveness.  The process took the form of desk research, a survey, individual interviews and focus groups.

We would like to thank the charities and individuals who took the time to help the Trust evaluate the impact of our current funding strategy.  The Gannochy Trustees had an opportunity to hear a sneak preview of some of your comments from Wren and Greyhound at their Away Day in February and they will be considering the full report at their Trustees Meeting on 29 March 2018.

We are already aware that the report contains a wealth of information which will take time to digest before we embark on the next three year plan.  The Trust has therefore decided to extend the current programme to 31 December 2018.  We have three grant-making meetings planned during that period, being 28th June, 4th October and 13th December.

We hope to announce the new three year funding strategy later in the year at an event which will be held in Perth in November 2018.  Please watch this space for more information in due course.
