We are a small (but mighty) network of contributors united in the belief that supporting local social innovation builds resilient communities and leads to positive, lasting, social change.
We work with a close network of local social innovators and critical friends, with backgrounds ranging across social enterprise, community organisations, finance, the built environment and media.
THE INSIGHTS GROUP
Footwork has gathered together a group of individuals with first-hand experience of social innovation, community funding and place-making to help us plan a new funding pot for local social innovators in 2023.
We have called this an Insights Group because we know this deep local knowledge and experience are so important in identifying and supporting people who do the difficult job of bringing about change in their communities.
