Local support is essential so that parents can link in with what is happening in their area and families can meet regularly to make friends, organise trips or visits out together or just find out what is going on.


These are self-help groups for families where local members can meet and offer mutual support. Local members can offer empathy and support to others. It is likely that there will be somebody in a branch who has similar experiences or who has local knowledge. Branches are a very important part of Potential Plus UK as they are run by local parents and a volunteer committee and they understand the needs of families and how to help.

Branches provide:

  • Local information and emotional support to families
  • Fun and stimulating activities for children with high learning potential and their siblings through the Explorers Clubs
  • Support for parents and carers

We currently have Branches meeting in:

For members there are discussion boards on the members’ area of this website for family networking within the regions.

If you are interested in setting up a branch in your local area please contact Potential Plus UK on 01908 646433 or email amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org with ‘Branches’ in the subject.

Explorer Clubs

Many Branches organise regular Explorer Clubs which are activity clubs for children of different ages. These meet usually on a monthly basis at a weekend and there is a small additional charge to attend club meetings to cover the operating costs of the event. The Events Diary has information on all Explorer Club activities on it.

All families are very welcome to visit the Explorers Clubs although it is hoped that regular attendees will join Potential Plus UK to help support our charitable work (don’t forget, concessionary rates are available).

  • Check the Events Diary for national and local activities and Explorers Clubs
  • Phone Central Office on 01908 646433 to request the contact details for your local Branch
  • Click through to the Branch websites on the link below (not all Branches have a website)

If you enjoy the Explorers Clubs we do encourage you to join Potential Plus UK to support the charity, the local Branches and our work in general.


In addition, some of our Branches also offer access to Awards which can be done either at home or in the local area or through the local or national events.

These include:

  • Potential Plus UK Arts Award Scheme
  • Crest Science Award
  • Potential Plus UK ICE Award
  • ASDAN Excelcis Award

For more information on any of these awards, please email us at amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org with ‘Awards’ in the subject.

Parent Matters Workshops

These are workshops for parents and carers of between one and a half to two hours long for up to 30 parents.

These can be run in school or within the community for groups of parents who are interested in working together on issues of relevance to parenting their child with high learning potential.

For more information, the current programme and costs, please contact us on 01908 646433 or email amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org with ‘Parent Matters Workshops’ in the subject.

Parents, have you thought of getting a group (such as a Home Educators group) of 20 parents and carers together and paying £20 each + a share of the travel costs and we will run a day’s workshop at cost price? What about £12.50 each + a share of the travel costs for a 2 hours’ workshop?

G&T Learning Matters

Potential Plus UK also runs workshops for Governors, Senior Leadership Teams, Teachers, Learning Support Assistants, Careers Advisers, Psychologists and other professionals.

For more information, the current programme and costs, please contact us on 01908 646433 or email amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org with ‘AG&T Learnng Matters’ in the subject.
