Potential Plus UK, officially the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) is a national association based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes in the United Kingdom, that offers support for gifted and talented children, and their parents. It is a registered charity under English law.[1]

The organisation aims to support the social, emotional and learning needs of children with high learning potential; this includes children who have been identified as gifted and talented; children who have the potential to achieve through a wide range of abilities in academic subjects, sport, the arts and leadership; those who are twice exceptional (giftedness coupled with a disability or learning difficulty) and the profoundly gifted. NAGC offers support and specialist advice, and holds social events for outside the classroom.

There is an organisation of the same name and acronym (NAGC) in the United States, with a similar remit and scope.
