Typically we ask for a brief progress report from funded projects 6 months after your grant offer, and require an end of project report. We will adjust these timescales if you tell us when you think your project will be complete.
If your project is complete when we contact you for a progress update, there should be no need for a further report, but we may ask you to provide a little more detail to enable us to accept this as a final report.
Progress reports can be completed on a straightforward online form, which will be provided to you. Like the application form, you can attach supporting information and evidence to your form.
Occasionally you may be asked to participate in additional monitoring – any specific requirements will be stated in the Funding Agreement, so please ensure you have read and understood before signing.
We will always get in touch with the main contact for group (as stated in your application) for updates, so if contacts change please let us know.
We, and the fundholder who has awarded your grant, will be keen to hear how your project progresses, and will be pleased to receive any case studies, photos, video or press clippings you would like to share. Occasionally fundholders or NCF staff may wish to visit, which we will arrange with your group in advance.
