This is an interesting evaluation of BIG’s Lottery ‘BIG Potential Breakthrough’ Fund – It was published in 2018 but the evaluation covers the period upto February 2017.  The fund was set up to encourage and prepare 3rd sector organisations in England and Wales to engage with and apply for Social Investment.

The main finding is that £6.6m was spent in grants for a social investment return of £2.8m
