Doing Social is helping to create the conditions for inclusive innovation in Britain, so that communities can access the right opportunities to create and co-create innovations which can improve their lives.
Welcome to our new website which we are continuing to develop over the next few months. To receive updates and details of events and opportunities, please subscribe to our mailing list and also connect with us on social media. If you have any queries or would like to explore how we can collaborate, please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
WHAT WE DO
Doing Social designs powerful experiences, resources and spaces to enable inclusive innovation, so that people from grassroots communities, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds, can access the right opportunities to co-create innovation or progress their own ideas for social change.
In short, we want to help to level the playing field for innovation, so that grassroots innovators and beneficiaries of social innovation can participate more meaningfully in shaping, delivering and leading the solutions to the problems they face.
We believe that meaningful inclusion, co-creation, and community-led innovation based on frugal principles, are key to achieving sustainable social change in communities and improving life chances, hence they are central to our thinking, the opportunities we create and to our own business model.
When asked, most organisations agree that social innovation is not inherently inclusive. Many also agree that community beneficiaries need better opportunities to participate meaningfully in, and benefit from innovation processes – including their own.
Organisations have told us that they would use a tool, if there was one available, to help them to co-create effectively with community beneficiaries, grassroots innovators and others.
We have been examining good practices and reflecting on our discussions with communities and are co-building a tool which can help organisations, innovators and others, across sectors, to be more inclusive and achieve stronger social outcomes through co-creation. We invite people and organisations interested in participating in the co-building process and/or in testing the new tool to please get in touch with us.
