The most powerful stories are the ones that help us connect with others.
The story of People Powered Results is one of how connection and a shared human experience fuels positive change and develops better systems. People Powered Results works in partnership with individuals, organisations and systems to release the power of people closest to issues.
We take on some of today’s biggest challenges and face the future with curiosity and confidence. We bring energy and optimism, and embrace failures as opportunities for learning. We’re collaborators, architects of change and developers of everyday innovation.
We began life in 2014 from experimental beginnings, born out of Nesta’s vision for a People Powered Health system: that health and care is about much more than medicine. People are healthier and recover faster when their social health needs are met alongside their clinical needs. But this approach would also need new innovation methods to bring it to life…
At the same time The Rapid Results Team had developed a new method called the 100 Day Challenge that would act as a catalyst to make progress on some of society’s most entrenched social problems. A marriage of the two saw the birth of the People Powered Results team.
Fast forward to 2021 we have now been established as a Nesta owned social enterprise as part of an ambitious new 10-year strategy. This means we will not only support work focused on Nesta’s new missions, but we will also continue to work across the UK on issues that are broader than the focus of the Nesta strategy, and important to the public systems and communities that we partner with.
