Monitoring & Evaluation

What happens after a grant is awarded

Monitoring & Evaluation

The Trustees are always interested to receive updates on the progress of work supported by the Trust and also appreciate being able to see photos, if appropriate (please don’t send lots of photos as we don’t have the storage!) We would like you to report back on how your grant was spent and the difference it has made to your work.  While this isn’t currently compulsory, it would be beneficial to any future applications you may wish to submit.

Please feel free to use our short monitoring form (available to download below) to send us a report.  Unfortunately we’re not always able to acknowledge receipt of reports but they do all get read and noted on our system and a selection will be circulated to the Trustees.

It is particularly helpful for organisations to enclose a report when applying again to the Trust a year later so that Trustees can consider this information alongside the new application.

The form is available in MS Word and PDF formats and you can either e-mail or post it back to us:


Monitoring Form - Word Version

This version of the Monitoring Form can be used in your word processor.  Please complete and return it to the Trust before the anniversary of your grant award.

Monitoring Form - PDF Version

This version of the Monitoring Form can be printed and filled in by hand.  Please complete and return it to the Trust before the anniversary of your grant award.

Sample Monitoring Form

Here is a sample completed form to give you a very rough idea of what we expect to see.

Organisations in receipt of large grants or those who receive regular annual funding may be visited by a Trustee or member of staff. This will give organisations a chance to feedback to us how their grant has been used, how they found the Trust’s application process and discuss any current and future funding needs.
