The sixth and final annual evaluation report for Big Potential Breakthrough (BPB) looks at the last six years of operation until 23 February 2020.
BPB engaged a wide variety of charities and social enterprises from across England and provided £9.54 million in grant funding: £6.89 million across 255 preliminary grants and £2.65 million across 64 investment plan grants.
Not all of this impact is directly because of BPB, but this evaluation makes clear its significant impact on these organisations in what was, and has been, a challenging operating climate for the voluntary sector.
While it is clear the programme has achieved a great deal, the learning and influence is still emerging.
Although the funding programme closed in September 2017, post-grant monitoring continued until Autumn 2018, and continuing qualitative data collection has and will continue into May 2020, the final
stretch within which this report is published. Alongside our partners, we will seek to use this information to influence and inform our collective future work.
