The People Powered Results team wound down in summer 2023

Over 10 years, the team built a tried and tested set of innovation methods that they applied in systems and places across the UK. There is a growing recognition of the need for, and value of, people powered approaches in bringing innovative solutions to complex systemic issues.

As part of their legacy, PPR pulled together the two resources below, that we hope will be useful to anyone who is interested in taking a more people powered approach.
