Our key themes

We will focus our work on three major areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact for the most people.

Public Services & Communities

We enable people to take an active role in solving the problems in their own communities, driving innovation and changing the way that public services are designed, delivered and managed. 

Creative Learning & Development

We seek to close the creativity gap, working with learners, educators and leaders to develop new approaches that enable everyone, regardless of background, to generate original, valuable ideas and make them happen. 

Economy, enterprise and manufacturing

We bring together businesses, makers and entrepreneurs to understand and promote entrepreneurship, sustainable and innovative manufacturing and to create the next generation of socially responsible designers and enterprises.
