All 9 Catalyst Umbrella programmes meeting their objectives

DC Research has published their interim report on all 9 Catalyst programmes on behalf of the HLF

Although the report is based on data up to and including December 2015, the report provides a useful update on how all the HLF-funded programmes are doing. The key successes are a) the scale of engagement achieved, ie the number of participants and organisations that have received training or support, b) the level of positive feedback received about the various activities delivered. Common themes are increased confidence in fundraising,, changes in fundraising practice and changes in attitudes to fundraising. A common issue is the limited capacity of the sector to make time to engage with the training.
