Since 2012 Good Ideas has engaged over 200 social innovators as they establish their own ideas for social and environmental change. We help them realise their potential, support their well-being, make connections as well as providing structure, development tools and space to work.

Over the years, the programme has supported creative organisations such as music innovators Tinderbox Project and Vox Liminis; environmental enterprises such as Green Aspirations and Edinburgh Tool Library; and mental health initiatives such as Fearless Femme and Real Talk.

Take 10 mins to support social change

We know how hard it is to start turning a good idea for positive social change into action. No matter how much you care about the issue or how confident you are in the approach, finding the time to start is often the limiting factor. This is exactly why we created the Good Ideas programme, to create space for developing early stage ideas. Read about our launch in Glasgow.
