People Know How is a Scottish social innovation charity 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.

The Rank Foundation’s vision is to contribute to a society that values young leaders and the Aspire Programme invests in those who may have fewer opportunities to prosper. The aim of the programme is to increase young people’s social mobility through supporting access to training and employment opportunities in the social sector and beyond, and through this to increase their potential for future employment and success.
