A full end of grant monitoring report will be expected at the end of the intervention. This will need to include benchmarking of the beneficiaries at the beginning and end of the service, i.e. how were they referred to the service, what crimes had been committed etc. Clear evidence of base line data, monitoring and reporting against these will be required.
You will also need to provide evidence of age appropriate resources.
If you are unsure about how to determine what the outcomes would be, please tell us about the inputs/outputs you will put in place, and the outcomes should come from these. As a general rule, think of the term “as a result of” when considering what the outcomes of the project will be.
Please note the outcomes also need to be aligned to the Police and Crime Plan.
