Working with different social enterprises, charities, co-operatives, businesses and community organisations across Leicester, we aim to grow and establish a community of like-minded people who wish to innovate through collaboration, and make a real difference to the lives of Leicester communities. 

Our approach:

  • EXPLORE: Bringing people together in a creative and stimulating environment, we facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experiences; to help 'dig deeper' and develop a greater understanding of the issues we want to address.  We foster a culture of knowledge and understanding

  • COLLABORATE: Using the city's diversity, with their varied personal and professional expertise and experience, we support the development of ideas and innovation.  We ensure a facility of open-mindedness, creativity and inclusion

  • ACT: Turn ideas into action by creating teams armed with necessary tools and skills to co-produce real-world products and services that can be tested and reviewed.  The social innovations developed by teams will start to take shape. We challenge others to bring ideas to life

  • MEASURE: Collaboratively working with social innovators to test ideas and prototypes, reviewing their specified outcomes and how they provide feedback on how they can evolve ideas for further innovation and scaling the reach and impact.  We develop a community of social innovators who make a real difference
