A detailed report on the activity and impact enabled by each grant is a condition of funding. Suggestions of the sort of information to be included can be found here. We understand that the impact of each charity’s work is very different, and the reporting is not intended to be burdensome, but rather a chance for you to tell us about the great work you have carried out.
