How to secure a slice of the Big Potential Fund

Big Potential is a BIG Lottery Fund grant fund, which will deliver approximately £10m funding in the next three year. But what’s the best way to secure funding? Eastside Primetimers is one of the first approved suppliers of specialist investment readiness support for Big Potential. As a provider they will help small and medium sized charities and social enterprises to make applications for grants of between £25,000 and £75,000, in order to fund the cost of developing business plans and raising investment.

Richard Litchfield, CE of Eastside Primetimers, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer our specialist skills to help more social ventures achieve the right type of social investment. Our partners at Social Investment Business and the Big Potential Fund share our aims of iimproving the sustainability, capacity and scale of social organisations, and to deliver greater social impact. We already provide similar services for the Investment and Contract Readiness Fund, so it’s a natural fit strategically and philosophically”
