People Know How


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.

Our main offices are in Edinburgh, Scotland and we work primarily in Edinburgh and East Lothian, with all parts of the community including children, young people, families, adults and the elderly. Our team is incredibly international, receiving volunteers, interns and placement students (our VIPs) from all over the world.

Our core services are Positive Transitions, supporting children, young people and families; and Reconnect, supporting adults and families to improve wellbeing through digital and social inclusion. We are also passionate about cross-sectoral collaboration and regularly hold events, initiate research and collate resources as part of our Connect Four initiative. We also provide a range of volunteering opportunities tailored to your personal interests.
