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!

LGB&T Rainbow Playground Event

In August URPotential took a group of 7 young LGBT people to Manchester to attend the Rainbow Playground Youth Pride event run by the Proud Trust. The day consisted of workshops, live performances, demonstrations and sports activates along with an autism friendly area and a quite zone.

Linda appointed Director of SELNET Board

Linda Markey Director of URPotential has been appointed as Director to the SELNET Board.  The Chair of the Board Graham Jones warmly welcomed Linda to the Board to work alongside existing Directors and two other new Directors appointed at the Annual General Meeting. Linda stated that ‘she is looking forward to working with her partner VCFS organisations to develop the sector in a time of uncertainty with Brexit looming but with confidence in the ability of the Board and partners to influence and lobby for change’.

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
