Impact

Stories and Numbers

Our Impact is measured both through the groups that we fund – what difference do they make to the community and to the individuals that they help – and though our overall data – the number of groups we fund, and the funding we distribute.

We organise this information by the local authority area and the needs addressed. We are committed to making our grantmaking transparent, so we also provide information to organisations that help with this process – 360 Giving and the Funders Race Equality Alliance
