Our work is continuing during Covid-19. We believe building connections to ensure that policies support everyone in society is more important than ever. We have now launched a series of online  programmes. Please reach out if you would like our support in making connections in your area.

Connecting the policy and social sectors to build a better future.  



TELESCOPE is a social enterprise that brings together policy and social sector workers for collaborative, practical learning experiences. 

Designed to encourage sector-wide collaboration, it ensures that people working on the frontline play a role in shaping the policies that will build resilient communities and a more inclusive society.

Having spent almost two decades operating at the sharp end of challenging inner-city estates, I’m convinced there would be transformative mutual value in creating co-learning spaces for our frontline staff alongside those creating and driving social policy.


This is exactly what Telescope does. It’s the solution we’ve been waiting for - at last there’s the opportunity to build meaningful relationships that create better policy and more effective delivery.
