Social Innovation in Action

We support innovative projects of different forms and at various stages of development for preventing and alleviating poverty and social exclusion, promoting social integration and enhancing people's well-being and cohesion of society.
A total of 150 projects have been funded under Innovative Programmes as of June 2019.

Get Involved

Have an innovative idea? We have engaged intermediaries to administer capacity building programmes and funding schemes. Individuals and organisations with innovative ideas in addressing poverty and social exclusion and wish to seek support for implementation may approach the intermediaries direct.

Be Inspired

Social Innovators come from different walks of life, different generations and have different background but all share the same empathy for the underprivileged and apply their expertise to drive change for social good. Be inspired by their stories.
