People Know How

Charity registered in Scotland SC043871

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 are based in Edinburgh, Scotland and 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.
