Ideas Alliance

At the Ideas Alliance CIC we promote the benefits of collaborative and strengths-based and community driven approaches. We deliver projects with councils, charities, local organisations and help them to consult with local people, work together, co-design services and work more collaboratively.

We use storytelling methods to find out what matters to people, helping to connect data to real emotion that uncovers powerful perspectives and evidence to drive positive change locally. Since our inception in 2016, we have engaged with over 6,500 people through different projects with organisations across the country and we have published over 300 articles via the Ideas Hub.
