Our grant making programmes are underpinned by a Theory of Change, which was developed in consultation with more than 30 of our stakeholders. This shows how we believe that supporting people to be more active, creative and connected leads to positive social outcomes.
We ask all projects to select which of the outcomes they are aiming to achieve, and develop a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework to identify how they will understand their impact.
We are keen to understand the overall impact of our investments as well as look at what each project is aiming to achieve. All projects are asked to report on the impact that their project is having on subjective wellbeing, using the ONS wellbeing measures.
