About Us

People Know How

We are a Scottish charitable organisation focused on being innovative and developing strategies, services and services to address social issues.

An Edinburgh Charity

We believe that “People Know How” to identify their needs and the solutions that will help them fulfil their potential and solve social issues. Often, people don’t realise that they “know how” and that’s where we come in – unlocking ideas for a better future, today. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, we are incredibly international, receiving volunteers and interns from all around the world; whilst in the same breath we engage with local people, and local issues.

Our Creative Process


  • Consultation. We consult people from our community on where they see challenges, opportunities and what they are looking to achieve in order to create positive change.
  • Research. Our team then conducts Social Research and examines existing publications following a systematic plan.
  • Solutions. We compare and study our findings to build innovative and creative solutions to modern social issues.
  • Sharing. After developing services and projects that meet diverse social needs, we pass them on to other organisations so we can continue developing and creating solutions with people, for people.
