What we do

We use design and technology to create positive social change.

Our purpose is to create positive and sustainable social change using design and technology.

We work with a variety of socially motivated businesses, charities, local authorities and government agencies who are committed to designing better services and delivering social innovation programmes.

Our work is focused around three areas:

Design: Helping organisations to design, refine and improve services.
Technology: Uniting people in communities through our community platform.
Network: Convening a network of community innovators to learn, share and inspire.
