Since 2011, Good Ideas has inspired and supported people to turn their ideas into new social enterprises and projects. We help people turn the seed of an idea into reality. This creates jobs, volunteering and of course, social impact. Our vision is a network of social innovators who can actively create systemic change. Good Ideas directly tackles inequality by supporting people with experience of an issue to implement solutions through social innovation.

We lead people on a journey that starts with the spark of an idea, or a specific social problem they seek to address through a series of facilitated workshops; at the heart of which is the use of Design Thinking methodology
