Helping funders and social organisations develop more impactful and sustainable products, services or programmes

The Problem

The culture and capacity of the social sector is overly focused on the short-term delivery outputs of social products and services. It neglects the importance of developing a strong concept and continuously iterating the solution to increase its social value, user value and financial value.

The Solution

A model to help social products, services and programmes work through three development stages in order to make the progress towards deep and lasting impact.

So far…

  • Supported by 7 major UK funders
  • 100+ social organisations consulted during development
