For more than a decade the Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) has been at the forefront of improving public sector infrastructure across Scotland.
Established by Scottish Government as a centre of infrastructure expertise, we provide additional skills, resource and knowledge to public sector organisations, supporting them plan, fund, deliver and manage their construction projects and buildings better.
As a result, infrastructure (its construction and end-use) drives forward inclusive economic growth and secures many social benefits.
For example, jobs are secured and apprenticeship places created; places become more attractive for people to move into; communities benefit from enhanced ‘place-based’ facilities; businesses thrive due to faster digital connectivity, and trade is made easier through improved transport links.
Having Scotland's economy front of mind, our aim is:
"to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of infrastructure investment and use in Scotland by working collaboratively with public bodies and industry, leading to better value for money and ultimately improved public services."
To maximise our impact, we have structured our business across five business areas, each led by an experienced director. This structure will improve collaborative working across the organisation to drive outcomes across sectors whilst maintaining existing workstream relationships and the value brought through continuity of the specialist knowledge which individuals have built up.
