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.  

Together. 

COLLABORATIVE LEARNING FOR REAL CHANGE

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.

Since our founding in 2019, we have run workshops focusing on health and social care, refugee rights, and education.

Our impact evaluation was developed through best practice guidance and frameworks by the Centre for Youth Impact and the Charities Evaluation Service/Inspiring Impact. Please get in touch for a copy of our recent evaluations.

TESTIMONIALS 

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.
