This evaluation also helps to ensure that we are delivering them in the most effective and efficient way possible. As part of this monitoring process, each project completes an annual survey. This is used to identify the effect that the Foundation’s investment has had on grassroots facilities and how many people have benefited. We then analyse the surveys to understand the success of the schemes, each of which are shown in the Funding Scheme Performance area of the Impact section.

By meeting with our applicants regularly at Support Days we verify whether they are achieving the participation and other targets we have set them, and are sustainable. We ensure each project is still delivering for their community at a high level for at least two decades. For projects that are not meeting expectations, actions are agreed at the Support Day meeting to help them improve their sustainability. We have certified 90% of our projects as long-term sustainable, and the average score in all areas of sustainability are above standard (that is, average scores of higher than two, which are categorised as ‘okay’, as you can see in the chart below). You can also see in this section how many Support Days we held last year and how our projects scored. Both of these can be broken down by region and meeting type (either a face-to-face meeting, or a telephone conference call). So last year, for example, we completed 353 Support Day meetings (176 in person meetings and 177 phone calls), of which 92% of the facilities were meeting expectations. bigger the circle, the more regular participants in that sport. (More detail is available when you visit the site.) This graph can be found in our Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund (PL/FA:FF) area, where, if you hover your cursor over the individual sport, it will give you more information on how many participants there are. Other sections include a PL/FA:FF ‘season comparison.’ Here you can see that, for instance, that we achieved an average increase of 15.2% in Under-16 female football participation at facilities we invested in, as compared to the previous year’s results. You can also see that 1,868 new grassroots football teams have been created in the previous football season through our (non-facility) Grow the Game scheme. These graphs can also be filtered by region.
