1. Introduction

Please complete this form to tell us how you have spent your grant commenting on whether it has helped your organisation to meet the aims of the programme.

You should only include expenditure for items purchased against the grant reference number shown in the 'Your Details' section. If your organisation has been awarded more than one grant through this programme, please check your grant offer letter to make sure that you are reporting expenditure against the correct grant reference number. We do not need to know about any costs that were paid for using other funds.

Note that the form includes some sections which you must answer in order to submit the form. Other sections have been automatically populated using the information you provided us with previously. Those sections are read only.

When you submit the form, you will receive an automated email to confirm that the form has been submitted successfully along with a copy of your completed form. Groundwork UK aim to contact you within 10 days to confirm completion of the grant or to request further information. We may also contact you to request further information or clarification on the information provided. This is quite normal.

If you have any questions please contact your Grants Officer at Groundwork UK via email at mycommunity@groundwork.org.uk or phone on (0121) 236 8565. Thank you.

Next to each item for lines 1-10, you must complete the expenditure column on the right hand side to show how much of your grant you have spent on these items. If you have not incurred any expenditure please leave the value as zero.

Where changes to your budget have already been approved by Groundwork UK, the budget below should represent these changes. Please give each invoice/receipt a reference number so we know which costs are related to which invoices.
