We support students to use their skills to train people to uncover their needs and work with local entrepreneurs to design solutions to meet them. We bring together expertise from public services, colleges & universities, technology & digital agencies to provide support to help people take their solutions forward.

The insights people come up help public services understand how people want to live independently and how digital technology can be used to help them do this.

We have leveraged over £100k external investment and involved over 2000 young people in the training.

Kent County Council designed the methodology & design process, Canterbury City Council designed and developed the digital platform, reusing EK Services idea generation tool.

If you'd like to work with us on developing this programme for a challenge or service in your organisation or community, do get in touch.

Support Programme Barclays, Cisco, Canterbury Christchurch University, Kent IT Clinic, Kent Connects, The Shed Makerspace and the University of Kent are providing the support to help people take forward their solutions.
