Our vision is a network of movement makers who collaborate to create systemic change in Scotland and beyond.
Since 2012 the Good Ideas programme has engaged over 200 social innovators as they establish their own ideas for social change. We have incubated 91 different social ventures of which 46 are still operating (or in development) today
The Young Foundation and NESTA, UK industry leaders in Social Innovation, have described a multi-stage spiral process for turning messiness into impact. The Good Ideas value proposition and impact measurement framework are designed to mirror this proven process.
