Resources For Grantholders

Once you are awarded your grant, you will be included on the Connect Fund Learning Community Google Group – an easy way for grantholders and partners to share the objectives, outputs, successes and challenges from their projects for the greater benefit of all.

Please do contact us if you have not been added to the group, or if any other colleagues would like to be added to the list.


Here’s some useful information regarding the management of your grant:

Standard Terms and Conditions

Your offer letter includes the standard terms and conditions of your grant and those specifically relating to your grant, but you can also find a standard offer pack here . Please note that this is a standard template for guidance only.  We update our offer letter from time to time so you should refer to our original offer letter for exact details of our agreement with you. This pack includes information on our communications expectations for this piece of work as well as other guidance.

Reporting Forms

We will be emailing you a link to a reporting form when your report is due but here are pdf versions – purely for reference – of our budget form, interim and end of grant report forms should you need to refer to them.


Financial reporting
Progress reports for grants made before June 2020
Progress reports for grants made after June 2020


If you are awarded a grant, your offer letter will contain details of our expectations around communications and what we can offer in terms of dissemination. If you have any questions about communications which aren’t covered in the offer letter do contact Diana Ruthven, Communications Manager and Liz Hayes, Connect Fund Manager.

When promoting your grant and the work funded by the Connect Fund grant, please refer to the Connect Fund branding guidelines.

Please do let us have details about any launch event, draft report, press release, social media campaign etc. so we can make sure to support you in your dissemination plans.
