It is another example of the Foundation’s commitment to operating as a focused, transparent and business-like charity. Each section has various interactive graphs displaying key information – from the total amount of money that we have invested into facilities since we were established, to the number and types of new football teams created as a result of our Grow the Game investment. It is a great way to find out how Football Foundation funding has impacted your area – and the rest of the country! www.footballfoundation. org.uk/impact The Investment area of the Impact section shows how many new facilities our grants have helped to develop throughout the country. On our interactive graphs, you are able to filter by region, year and type of facility built. To date we have invested in 628 third generation (3G) artificial grass pitches (AGP), 2,878 natural grass pitches and 993 changing pavilions. You can also display the Foundation’s total investment by scheme, region and the year the grants were awarded. AGPS GRASS PITCHES CHANGING ROOMS The Foundation is committed to continually improving our understanding of how the investments we deliver are benefiting grassroots football throughout the country. One way we do this is by carrying out in-depth research on a specific area to improve our knowledge-base and to help inform future policy decisions. This also supports our approach of engendering a ‘culture of continuous improvement,’ as the research often helps us identify and implement improvements to the way that the Foundation operates. The Research area in the Impact section hosts these research pieces that have been undertaken, either by ourselves, or by an independent research body that we have commissioned.
