Welcome to Social Innovator!

Across this site you’ll find hundreds of methods and tools for designing, developing and growing social innovation. They’re organized into three sections – the process of social innovation, the intermediary organisations which support social innovation and the supports or enabling conditions which enable innovation to flourish. We’ve pulled together a series of case studies to illustrate what social innovation is, and the methods used to generate it. In the reading room we’ve suggested some of our favourite books which have helped shape the way we think about social innovation.

This is just the beginning! We hope that you will contribute methods, case studies and suggestions for reading to help the site grow and develop. We’ll update the site with new methods and case studies, but we need your support to make Social Innovator full of interesting and useful information on the ways to design, develop and grow social innovation. We welcome your contributions!
