Big Potential Breakthrough: Year 5 Evaluation

This evaluation of the fifth year of the the Fund’s Big Potential Breakthrough programme looks at research results gathered from the first five years (2014-2019) of operation. For the first time, this is
supported by the first batch of longitudinal data coming from those VCSEs that completed end-of-grant Diagnostic Tool surveys.

To date, 29 VCSEs out of 319 VCSEs that were awarded grants have gone on to secure social investment deals totalling £6.56 million, from grant funding of £9.45 million. £6.89 million was awarded
across 255 preliminary grants and £2.65 million, across 64 investment plan grants. These deals were either community share investment or debt finance (loan) deals; and equate to 68.8% of the funding

With our partners, we will seek to use this information to influence and inform future work.
