Big Potential & Social Investment Explained: Southampton
Tue 28 March 2017, 10:30 – 14:30 BST
You may have heard of terms like 'social investment' and grant funds like 'Big Potential', but what do they all mean?
Social Investment Business is hosting a programme of events to raise awareness and provide information about Big Potential to charities and social enterprises that are disability-focused and disabled-led.
Big Potential Breakthrough is more than a funding programme - it offers bespoke support (through an approved service provider) and grants between £20,000 and £75,000 to help organisations become ready to take on investment.
The fund is aimed at charities and social enterprises who want to improve their sustainability, capacity and scale and help them deliver greater social impact for communities across England.
Join us in Southampton to learn all about social investment, consider if it is right for your organisation, learn how Big Potential can help you and hear stories from other organisations who have benefited from the fund.
