URPotential New Youth Fund

URPotential held their first Futures Ball in September 2016, the aim of the event was to raise funds to help young people break down financial barriers to reach their potential. URPotential would like to thank everyone who attended the Ball and helped to raise the funds.

We are now offering an opportunity for young people (11-25) to apply for the funding to purchase items that would benefit them in gaining employment, training, education or volunteering.

The money raised is to support young people who struggle financially to reach their full potential. The funds will be available upon application & can be requested by contacting URPotential.

To find out the process and to get an application please click here for more information.

The Big Local Survey


UR Potential is pleased to working with Rovoelution on the ‘Nothing for you without you’ scheme. Revoelution has funding to help improve the local area, but, we can only do this with your help.  We hope you can spend just 10 minutes to answer a few questions. All the answers are confidential unless you tell us something that we need to act on, we need to act if you tell us something that we think puts you or others in danger.

The purpose of this consultation is to find out what services local young people want and need. We are covering the Revoe area and we hope that the answers you provide will inform and educate the Big Local, Revoelution project in deciding where and what to spend money on.

You can get involved by one of two ways.

The first is; please complete the ‘Nothing for you without you’ on line questionnaire by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/82TTWTN 

The second is; please complete the ‘Nothing for you without you’ questionnaire (paper version). To get a batch of these, please contact Laura or Erin at URPotential on 01253 344 398 or via  info@urpotential.co.uk

URPotential is a Community Interest Company. We are a not for profit organisation. Our values are based on community cohesion and the development of communities who take the lead. We believe in supporting individuals to fulfill their potential and reach their dreams.

We understand that for some people within our communities it is difficult to make that step into either volunteering, employment or further education. We will provide support through establishing peer mentors, befriending groups and training to ensure that step is a pleasant and rewarding experience.

We have four areas of work: Volunteering,  Training, Research and Consultancy and Direct Delivery of Youthwork
