social careAbout the RSA
The RSA has been a source of ideas, innovation and civic enterprise for
over 250 years. [ In the light of new challenges and opportunities for the
human race our purpose is to encourage the development of a principled,
prosperous society by identifying and releasing human potential. This is
reflected in the organisation’s
recent commitment to the pursuit of what it
calls 21st century enlightenment.
Through lectures, events, pamphlets and commissions, the RSA pro
vides a flow of rich ideas and inspiration for what might be realised in
a more enlightened world; essential to progress but insufficient without
action. RSA Projects aim to bridge this gap between thinking and action.
We put our ideas to work for the common good. By researching, design
ing and testing new ways of living, we hope to foster a more inventive,
resourceful and fulfilled society. Through our Fellowship of 27,000 people
and through the partnerships we forge, the RSA aims to be a source of
capacity, commitment and innovation in communities from the global to
the local. Fellows are actively encouraged to engage and to develop local
and issuebased initiatives.
About 2020 Public Services Hub
The 2020PSH is a research and policy development hub at the RSA,
created from the legacy of the 2020 Public Services Trust – the charity
which convened and supported the Commission on 2020 Public Services
between December 2008 and its final report in September 2010. 2020PSH
specialises in developing practicebased research on social productivity
in public services. As part of RSA Projects, it engages with local public
service organisations, national sector leaders and other national partners
to develop social value and social productivity thinking and practice. The
pressures on public services are many and varied – spending cuts, future
demands, and the challenge of engaging more effectively and creatively
with citizens and communities. ]
