Applied Innovation

We help others to innovate for positive social change. Building on the legacy of Michael Young, we bring unheard voices to the fore and help people realise their full capacity and embed the innovative ideas coming through The Young Foundation and its networks.

The Applied Innovation team develops programmes to increase the impact of social innovation on a large scale.

Our clients range from government departments to local authorities, funding bodies and charities. We draw on a range of approaches, tools and the skills and experience of a multi-disciplinary team of staff and associates.  We bring in partners with particular sector expertise where this adds to our offer.

We have a particular interest and expertise in scaling, diffusion and growth in the public and voluntary sectors.
