Insights: Learning from our funding

Read our first Insights report, which shares learning from our funding.

As a broad-ranging funder, we are not expert on every issue and sector we support. The real experts are the organisations we fund. They have much greater knowledge or lived experience, and they operate in the real world, without the security of an endowment. However, as an independent funder we have an overview and a freedom which others in our sectors do not. With this comes the responsibility to share what we are learning from those we support.

We have made a lot of changes over the last two years and we want the people we fund to see what we are learning from what they tell us, and how we are starting to make changes as a result. We hope it’s useful to other funders as well.
