Whether you’re an organisation or individual, you’ll be surprised at just how we can help you achieve your potential…


Oh, what a night!!  Record numbers attended our 8th Celebration Event at Blackpool Football Club.

We gave out over 200 certificates celebrating the achievements of our learners, volunteers and youth groups, and heard inspirational stories from individuals  who have been able to change and improve their lives with our support.

It was an amazing evening – full of entertainment, dancing, laughter and a true celebration of all that is good in the lives of many.

A heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who made it possible: our sponsors, partners, guest presenters, learners, volunteers, young people and our fabulous and unique staff team!

Can’t wait till next year!


URPotential Youth Fund

We are 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 for the youth fund is raised through URPotentials fundraising balls.

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.

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
