What is RSA Transform?

What is RSA Transform?

RSA Transform is an ambitious programme supporting projects that have the potential to transform society by mobilising the RSA’s unique resources behind the bold visions of our Fellows. Projects benefit from a dedicated RSA staff member who will help design and implement a bespoke programme of support.

This could be identifying valuable expertise from within the Fellowship; convening influential stakeholders; or amplifying a message to mobilise people around a call to action - transforming radical ideas into practical action that change our communities for the better. 

What kind of projects does RSA Transform support? 

We support forward-thinking Fellows with big ideas and a bold vision for how their project can transform the lives of millions of people. This could be an innovative model of healthcare or a radical approach to creating a more sustainable and inclusive economy; we’re seeking projects that can bring about a major shift in society in our key areas of work

For over 260 years the RSA has been a home for great thinkers, innovators and social reformers. RSA Transform aims to support the next generation of pioneering Fellows’ to implement the breakthrough solutions we need to tackle the major social challenges of the 21st Century.

The RSA Transform programme has been crucial in supporting Greater London Mutual (GLM) move from concept to reality. The RSA has connected us to key stakeholders; brought Fellows with significant expertise on to our board; and a growing number of Fellows are registering to join our movement. Working with the RSA we will create a bank committed to driving a more inclusive growth in our economy.
