Community-led innovation

Community-let innovation network focused on grassroots networks and organisations that are deeply embedded within their communities, and who seek to tackle the everyday challenges experienced by individuals and neighbourhoods.

The network provides rich access to ‘unusual suspects’ and welcomes the fresh ideas and new approaches inherant in social innovation. The network connects to the Community-led local development and enables us to build on the work started by SIE on migration, where citizen-led initiatives have moved faster than the institutions to respond to local need.  The network also provides the opportunity to connect to the food-growing movements and the maker movements that would be otherwise hard to reach.
