Hounslow Stats Bank

Funders consistently tell us that bids often fail because there is not enough ‘evidence of need’ for the proposed work.

Statistics are a key ingredient for a strong needs statement and persuasive funding bids. They can also give you valuable insight to plan and focus your work in general.

The Hounslow Stats Bank is a user-friendly, easy-access collection of free online stats to help voluntary and community groups with new funding bids.
