Scottish Book Trust is a charity that changes lives through books, reading and writing. A love of reading inspires creativity, improves employment opportunities, mental health and wellbeing, and is one of the most effective ways to help children escape the poverty cycle.


  • give free books to every child in Scotland to ensure all families can share the joy of books at home and to lay the foundations of literacy.
  • work with teachers to inspire children to develop a love of reading, creating innovative classroom activities, book awards and author events. 
  • work with adult learners to tackle social issues and help to improve literacy skills.
  • support Scotland’s diverse writing community with our training, awards and writing opportunities.
  • bring a range of author events to the public including Book Week Scotland.

We work towards a Scotland where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive through literacy.

To support us in achieving our aims, we are looking to redevelop our website and to introduce a CRM to support all areas of the charity.

Suppliers are invited to tender for either the website or CRM, or for both the website and CRM contracts. If tendering separately, the appointed suppliers will be required to work closely with the other appointed supplier to deliver the system, and it may be useful to read both website and CRM documents to fully understand the scope of the current projects.
