The Big Society Network

exists to support and develop talent, innovation and enterprise to deliver social impact.

By working with business, philanthropists, charities and social ventures we believe we can unleash the social energy that exists in the UK to help build a better, healthier society.

Social energy is the positive energy that comes from spending time in a stimulating environment with other people.

The Big Society Network exists to support and develop talent, innovation and enterprise to deliver social impact. By working with business, philanthropists, charities and social ventures we believe we can unleash the social energy that exists in the UK to help build a better, healthier society.

We believe the best way to achieve real social impact is by nurturing social entrepreneurs and innovators, powering charities and organisations, and distributing our collective knowledge and expertise.

Nexters is our programme that nurtures the UK’s most talented social entrepreneurs and best social businesses. By identifying and developing social entrepreneurs, we are supporting the development of innovative solutions to improve our society.

Powering social change requires bringing together our collective knowledge and expertise with our best innovators to gain insight in to what really works. Spring is our research, development and thought leadership programme that aims to realise the potential of technology to enable people to make smarter choices in giving their time and money.

We spend our days encountering people and organisations who are passionate about our society, who are committed to strengthening it and making positive changes. As a Network we distribute this social energy by holding regular highly participative and networking-focused events and by the use of networked technology.

 

“Our aim is to champion people and organisations that are part of social change”.

“We are a catalyst, creating partnerships with the wider society”

“We are an incubator, connector and an innovator, discovering new ways for society to engage, communicate and share”.
