COMMUNITY BENEFIT PARTNERSHIPS

Travis Perkins Managed Services & City of Edinburgh Council

In 2015, the City of Edinburgh Council awarded a contract to Travis Perkins which includes a community benefit clause, whereby 1% of the contract spend will be provided by Travis Perkins Managed Services towards community projects based in areas of the city with a high density of Council housing.  The OneCity Trust was approached by the City of Edinburgh Council and Travis Perkins Managed Services and became the route for community legacy funding.

We are extremely grateful for the continuing support of Travis Perkins and the City of Edinburgh Council, as this partnership has been extended to 2022.  To date, the OneCity Trust has received funding of £188,500, which has been distributed via grants to projects across Edinburgh.
