The Big Potential Fund was established for Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises (VCSEs) who are preparing for investment and is designed to enable them to improve their sustainability, capacity and scale, helping them deliver greater social impact for communities across the country.

UNW were approved as a Big Potential provider in March 2017, and are currently the only organisation in the North East who offer both the Breakthrough and Advanced route.

Due to unprecedented levels of demand for Big Potential applications, deadlines have been moved forward to ensure as many organisations as possible have the opportunity to apply for a grant before the programme closes.

Big Potential Breakthrough route: All applicants for Big Potential Breakthrough need to be submitted by midday on Friday 15th September, with all applicants informed of the outcome by December. The deadline for submitting Big Potential diagnostic reports remains midday on Friday 30th June.

Big Potential Advanced route: All applications for Big Potential Advanced need to submitted by midday on Wednesday 9th August, with all applicants informed of the outcome by October.

Big Potential is administered by the Social Investment Business on behalf of the Big Lottery Fund in partnership with Locality, Social Enterprise UK, Charity Bank and the University of Northampton.
