Sharing our work

We want to be as open-source as possible – we’re spending a lot of time trying to find the best (fairest, most considerate and ethical) ways to do things, and if our work is helpful for you then we’d like to save you time, so you can get on to do great things quicker.

Project Reports

When we complete our projects, we report back to our funders to explain the impact we’ve had and our methods / reflections on what was successful. We hope this is useful for you in either emulating our projects – or just seeing how we write our reports!

Since this is describing work that we’ve carried out, the reports will be available to view in PDF, rather than being editable.
