πŸ”­ Our mission & vision

People Know How is a Scottish social innovation charity based in Edinburgh and East Lothian. We work with people and communities to develop innovative strategies and services to address social issues both locally and nationally.

Our aim is to support and empower both individuals and organisations to mobilise their assets and realise their true potential. People often don’t realise that they know how, and that’s where we come in – unlocking ideas for a better future, today. We call this social innovation.

We do this locally by developing and delivering new and innovative projects in collaboration with people and partners. We do this nationally by initiating action-research projects in partnership with academia and stakeholders from all sectors, including other charities, community groups, businesses and the public sector, derived from our local project work. From these activities, we run nationwide campaigns that influence government policy, enhancing community development and acting as a catalyst for systems change, policy development and improved practice across Scotland.

Our mission is to unlock potential, helping people turn their ideas into positive action.

Our vision is for people to have new opportunities, strengths, and assets to fulfil their potential.

Our values are to be Collaborative, Dynamic, Action Orientated, Innovative and People-Led.

🌍 Our impact & how we measure it

Using our social innovation model, we work with people and communities to develop innovative strategies and services to address social issues both locally and nationally. We Ask, Research, Do and Share locally, and initiate action-research and campaigning & lobbying nationally.
