We ask all grant-holders to report on the progress of their grants, so that we can both monitor how work is going practically and financially, and to identify useful lessons that will help improve our grant-making whilst passing on good practice to others.
We understand that expectations and goals change as work progresses and that work may be exploratory, so outcomes naturally change over the course of any grant. We are interested in why that happens and would like to hear about any of these changes and unexpected outcomes in your progress reports as well
It is particularly important to keep your Grants Managers up-to-date with any significant changes to the grant in order that they can discuss and agree future workplans, as a result of any changes you may have made. How openly grant-holders report to us is an important factor when it comes to determining future applications.
There is no set length to progress reports. Please structure your report following the points identified in the guidance notes below and answer each as briefly and clearly as possible using the space you need.
- Reporting guidelines for grants awarded pre-January 2013.
- Reporting guidelines for standard grants awarded post-January 2013.
- Reporting guidelines for non-standard grants post-January 2013.
Your Grants Manager will inform you which reporting approach applies to your grant and will confirm any additional information that may be required in the grant offer letter.
