Contrary to what current intellectual discourse in the social sector might lead you to think, the reality is that the vast majority of organisations working for people are small and massively underfunded. Neither governmental nor transgovernmental entities have been able to eradicate human problems through size alone, so it's clear that the answer lies in some alternate mechanism that leverages the power of small able organisations. The long term goal of Social Effect is therefore to support, enable and network the design and delivery of workable social solutions and manageable organisations that are still deeply connected to the frontline.

We mostly work behind the scenes, either independently or in teams of associates, designing, implementing and scaling programmes to address local and systemic challenges at any level. Our approach is to co-create, mentor and transfer skills wherever possible so that the work we've done can be recreated or evolved by the team itself in the future without any dependency on us.
