A society where the most effective social organisations flourish

What we're all about

The Social Innovation Partnership

About us

The Social Innovation Partnership (TSIP) is a trusted advisor to public, private and social sector organisations seeking to maximise their social impact.

Our vision is a society where the most effective social organisations are able to flourish.

We believe that a strong and dynamic society will take shape when evidence and innovation sit at the heart of efforts to tackle our most persistent social challenges; when:

  • evidence is used to better understand what brings about social change, and
  • innovation is used to find and test new solutions.

Organisations across all sectors are striving to progress in this direction, and face growing pressure to do so - but many struggle to access support that is practical, useful and realistic.

The Social Innovation Partnership exists to fill this gap.

We work with organisations to help them clarify their purpose and what it is they want to achieve. We then support them to develop the systems and skills they need to embed evidence and innovation in their work. With this combination of strategic and practical support, they can measure, communicate and grow their social impact.

We pride ourselves on partnering with ambitious organisations that share in our vision, so that together we can achieve lasting social change.


Our values are important to us. They define our culture and guide us in our daily work.

Our Values


We turn ideas into action. Theory is all very well, but it needs to translate into real change. We are uncompromising about the need for our work to have immediate practical value to our clients.


We act as a critical friend. The urgency for social change demands honesty. We deliver frank and often tough messages when others might not, to challenge our clients and the wider sector to do better.


We pursue excellence in everything that we do. We set and maintain high standards, because we are as passionate as our clients about social change. We learn from our mistakes to continually improve.


We work only where we can make a significant impact. Deep social change will require leaders to show the way. We partner with impactful organisations that share our vision of a more sustainable and dynamic sector.


We energise creative thinking. Innovation is the surest way to thrive in today’s complex and connected world. Unlike a conventional consultancy, we actively engage and challenge our clients to think creatively about their work.
