Big Potential Advanced: Year two evaluation

This paper is the second annual evaluation report for Big Potential Advanced (BPA) covering the first two years of operation up to December 31st 2016. It provides indications as to the effectiveness of the programme, the broad types of VCSEs that sought BPA support and how this support is translating into increased investment and contract readiness as well as ‘deal flow’.

The research uses the demographic data obtained from VCSE applicants at the online registration phase as well as in their grant applications, and also uses interview data that was gathered by the evaluation team from VCSE applicants (successful and unsuccessful); commissioners, social investors; providers; panel members; and policy-makers.
