After your application is approved
You will receive a formal contract from the Trust agreeing to provide funding according to certain terms and conditions. This contract should be signed and returned to the Director and a copy kept by you for reference.
Typically these conditions will include:-
- A schedule of reporting dates tied to release of payment dates
- A requirement to acknowledge the Trust's support in all published articles relating to the project
- A commitment to publish articles summarising the outcomes of the project in practical terms
- A requirement to provide appropriate photo's and text for use in the Trust's Annual Report or website as appropriate
Submission of progress reports
Your contract will detail the timings of when progress reports are due. These dates are critical and are there to tie in with the Trust's scheduled business meetings. Should a progress report be submitted after the due date without very good reason, it will be deferred to the next available meeting date, without exception.
Content of progress reports
Each project is different and there is no set length or format for individual progress reports. However, a section must be included in the report which
- summarises the original aims and objectives of the project;
- describes the achievement towards those aims and objectives in the reporting period;
- highlights the remaining tasks to be done before the close of the project and
- indicates whether there have been any material changes in resourcing (staff or budget) within the project in the reporting period.
All reports should be sent to the Director.
Timings for report submissions are contained within your contract and specific dates for the submission of reports are the same as for new applications and will be notified on the website from time to time.
