Who we are
We are an independent charity that supports the social, emotional and learning needs of children with high learning potential of all ages and backgrounds. This includes:
Our aim is to enable every child with high learning potential to grow in confidence, thrive and achieve fulfilment. We achieve this in the following 3 ways:
Across the country, we support over 14,000 children and young people each year face to face and over the telephone. Our work is particularly important to children with high learning potential who come from low-income backgrounds, as it is these children who often endure the greatest shortfall in gifted and talented support. Approximately 1 in 7 of the families we support is low income and, through our approaches, we help ensure that every bright childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s potential will be realised.
I really feel renewed in my efforts to deal with all the challenging behaviours that come along with the giftedness. I'm ready to take a deep breath and embark on my new and improved plan! Thank you for your much needed help.
How our work is funded
We are an independent charity which receives no support from government. As such, we are completely reliant on the continued generosity of our donors. Every pound we receive truly does make a difference to the work that we do and to the future of children with high learning potential.

I can't begin to imagine what our lives would be like without the Potential Plus UK. It's a scary thought.
