This template sets out what most funders are looking for in reports. It is taken from Harmonising Reporting – a document produced by ESS and Scotland Funders’ Forum.

This is what most funders are looking for reports and is a good place to start for funders in designing their requirements and funded organisations in preparing reports. It asks you to think about key questions and reflections in your work including:

  • What we’re we expected to do as an organisation?
  • What did we actually do? What was achieved?
  • What difference did we make?
  • The challenges and changes that occurred because of the work?#
  • Future learning.
