Insights from our funding


In 2015, as part of a five-year strategy, we set out to focus as much on learning from our funding as we do on allocating it.

This approach is not about measuring the impact of our funding, but using evidence to learn from our own successes and failures, and to use that learning to make changes.

We have built an approach to learning that is practical, proportionate, and - above all - useful.
