Whilst we have previously communicated externally about the kind of trends we are seeing across our open awards at the end of a financial year, the introduction of a quarterly Giving blog gives me an opportunity to share information more regularly.
It is fair to say (and fully endorsed by my team!) that I’m not a natural ‘blogger’, but I believe that sharing observations from each funding cycle may be of value to:
potential applicants, in terms of understanding our priority areas and what we look for in applications;
and other funders, who may well be observing similar trends in their own work.
