The Design for Social Impact Framework

Our work is rooted in our foundational values of anti-oppression, intersectionality, and justice. We are inspired by  a growing design justice movement that seeks to ensure that the design of products, services, and spaces is equitable and inclusive. 

Our work is guided by 8 core principles highlighted below. Through our program, we teach you how to integrate these principles across program development, policy and research processes. Our mission is to empower you to use design as a catalyst for social good.

One in four children in the UK live in poverty. I was that one in four and I've dedicated my career working with historically underserved communities. I'm passionate about education and believe it is one of the most powerful tools we have to address structural inequities. 

Over the last 15 years, I've had the privilege of working on diverse educational initiatives, ranging from community education to emergency education responses. My experiences have taken me from the heart of small grassroots organizations to collaborating with international non-governmental organizations.

Today, I draw upon the wisdom I've gained to assist individuals like you in designing education programs, policies, and research with a laser focus on equity.

By harnessing the power of the Design for Social Impact framework and facilitating this course with an exceptional team of facilitators (full team update soon!), we are dedicated to guiding you in co-creating impactful projects, pioneering strategies, and practical tools.
