In 2009-10, we made 1,743 grants totaling £5.856,561. We have helped communities across and beyond our immediate area of benefit. The work involved epitomises what the voluntary sector can achieve with extra help given at the right time. A trademark of the groups we fund is their ability to do a lot with modest amounts of money, so we are proud that small grants remain the backbone of our grant-making.
We work hard to evaluate our effectiveness, understanding that the results come from those in whom we invest. We do not want to overburden grantees, so we analyse particular activities and certain grants in more depth, whilst asking everyone to provide feedback on their achievements.
