Learning and Resources


Tools, data and resources to share and encourage diversity, innovation and learning to promote social investment.  Click on the resources below to read more about them.

Learning Community

The Connect Fund will be creating learning partnerships providing solutions to social investment challenges.  Better sharing of tools, data and resources can lower transaction costs, as well as encouraging diversity, innovation and learning to promote social investment.

Resources generated by Connect Fund projects are available on this page. Grantholders and partners can also access the Trello Board for our Learning Community, an online tool that makes collaboration easy.  Contact us if you would like to join.


Grantholders Reporting Forms

We will be emailing all our grantholders a link to a reporting form when your report is due. We will also request that you complete and submit the Connect Fund Outputs Monitoring Form with each report. You can find pdf versions – purely for reference – below of our Interim and End of Grant Report Forms and the Outputs Monitoring Form, should you need to refer to them:

If grantholders are publishing a report as part of their grant, they can refer to Barrow Cadbury Trust’s guidelines and tips on report writing. Please ensure that all reports are sent to the Connect Fund team at least two weeks in advance of publication for review.
