This claim form should be completed by the authorised senior officer of the forum (or grant holding organisation) that signed the Conditions of Grant for the 2020-21 application and returned to Contact by pressing the 'submit' button below when complete.

Contact is the contracted partner of the Department for Education (DfE) and administers the parent carer participation grant on their behalf. If your forum’s proposed spend has changed from that on your approved 2020-21 grant application, please check with your regional advisor that your amended plans still meet the Conditions of Grant before going ahead. The amount claimed will also need to be accounted for at year-end as part of the total grant payment, supported by invoices and receipts.

Please be aware that your forum’s 2019-20 monitoring has to be approved before you can apply for your additional claim payment.

Additional claim for 2020-21
Forum health and effectiveness

We’d like to know a little about how your forum has fared throughout this year. Has anything impacted upon your expected progress, or have you encountered significant challenges?
Amount to be claimed
Your underspend is quite large, please tick the box to confirm you are confident that you will be able to spend all the grant money in 2020/21 *

Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the DfE agreed that underspends could be rolled over into 2020/21 therefore your underspend will not be deducted from your 2nd tranche payment. However, if you think you will be unable to spend your 15,000 grant allocation and your 2019/20 underspend in 2020/21 please think about applying for less for your 2nd tranche payment. As you will have to account for this in your 2020/21 monitoring and any underspends will be deducted from your 2nd tranche payment in 2021/22.
