We believe in
the power of people
We help organisations and people try bold things that scare them - and do it together
We believe that the current system is not working for the people who need it the most - a fragmented social sector, organisations placed in competition with one another, massive scale and diversity of challenges, too great a focus on 'delivering services'. The Collective Impact Agency exists to transform those systems to work better for people and communities.
Of course, we know we cannot do any of this alone. So, we work with other people and organisations to design and run experiments in how we make those systems work better, we deliver workshops on subjects we think contribute to building organisations that are system-change-ready, and we work with organisations and groups in learning partnerships.
We are fortunate to be able to coordinate the Gateshead Community Bridgebuilders experiment - reimagining how governance and resource flows might work differently to build community power.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
