To do this effectively, and help guide our decision making, we‟ve developed a set of grant making principles.
  9. 9. Our Grant-Making PrinciplesUnderstanding the • Organisation show understanding of context and root causes of issues – may include culture, context political and economic environment and role of others Consulting with • People who benefit from projects – as well as those who could influence – are consulted at Key Players the outset and their views incorporated into project design. Including marginalised groupsBuilding on Good • How organisations are drawing on “good practice” and knowledge of “what works to inform Practice their work. [We also welcome people experimenting with new ideas and approaches] Involving local • People who benefit from projects actively participating in those project – from membership of people advisory groups and trustee boards to feeding back on value of servicesInvesting in local • How project will contribute to building more effective and accountable local organisations organisations Working with • How organisations work with others – may be through sharing information and learning, joint others influencing work and approaches to make work sustainable in the long term Implementing • How organisations have developed practical ways of capturing information and creating alearning strategies culture committed to reflection, analysis and learning • Organisations which use the evidence they have built up to inform their future plans andApplying learning influence the decisions of others, particularly policy makers and others in the field
