BIG Potential at The Young Foundation

We are an approved provider for BIG Potential — a free to access Big Lottery fund programme that offers VCSE organisations the chance to consider the usefulness of social investment as part of its broader financing or fundraising strategy.

The Young Foundation Ventures team has been providing support to voluntary and community sector organisations of all shapes and sizes for nearly a decade.

We deliver jargon free, straightforward advice to de-mystify social investment and explain what it means to be ‘investment ready’.


Our dedicated team specialises in:

  • Business planning & strategy support
  • Financial management & modelling
  • Understanding and measuring social impact


We offer this support across the UK — with established networks and physical space in the South East, Wales and the Midlands.
