Our impact reports
Impact reports detail the Outcomes achieved by the groups we support, by the end of work funded by our grants. Outcomes are the positive changes that people experience in their lives as a result of the charitable work. We base the reports on information provided by the groups at the end of the grant period, which is usually 12 months after the funding is awarded This is why the reports relate to grants awarded in the previous year.
