We are an Edinburgh charity working with people and communities to develop innovative strategies and services to address social issues.
Our aim is to support and empower both individuals and organisations to mobilise their assets and realise their true potential. Often, people do not realise that they know how. That’s where we come in, unlocking ideas for a brighter future.
People Know How was founded in 2013 on the principle that people know how to identify their needs and the solutions that will help them fulfil their potential and solve social issues. 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 work primarily in the North East locality, with all parts of the community including children, young people, the elderly and those affected by homelessness. Our team is incredibly international, receiving volunteers, interns and placement students (our VIPs) from all over the world.
We also collaborate and work in partnership with a large body of partners and stakeholders in running our projects and services and driving social change.
