Results of our 2018 Grants Plus survey

We surveyed our grant and social investment holders (all approved decisions made from January 2017 to December 2018) about  what they want from 'Grants Plus' support. You can find a summary of responses in the short report below.

Altogether, we received 234 responses with a representative spread of sectors, and parts of the UK. In the report, you can also see a comparison with responses to our smaller 2017 survey (81 responses) and a larger scale survey we did in 2015 (458 responses). 

Key questions we asked include:

  • What do organisations want from 'grants plus' support?
  • Do smaller and larger organisations need different things?
  • If they had an extra £6,000* to spend on improving the way their organisations run, what would they spend it on?

*£6,000 is the average Grants Plus award.
