Real Ideas Organisation

 RIO Real Ideas partner

At RIO we believe social enterprise has the power to change the world.

We’re passionate about solving social problems and by working with individuals, organisations and sectors we harness the power of social enterprise to deliver real and lasting social change.

We draw on our own very real experience of developing award winning social enterprises to deliver strategic programmes , along with a range of social enterprise solutions - including consultancy, training and business support - to help others realise their ambitions through social enterprise.

RIO are leaders in Cultural Education. As the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for the South West of England we work with schools, youth settings and cultural organisations to connect young people with great art and culture.

Our comprehensive suite of support is offered at three levels – information and advice, training and CPD, and in depth consultancy – all subsidised by Arts Council England.

As Bridge Organisation we can provide specialist support to organisations around the Arts Award and Artsmark, to help embed the Arts Council’s Quality Principles and to develop Cultural Education Plans.

RIO offer a variety of programmes to support schools, including the Social Enterprise Leaders in Schools training. This programme is a unique package of support designed to meet the needs of schools and develop the skills required to design and run real social enterprise activity within an education setting – the perfect way to deliver inspirational learning, bring in new energy and connections and keep your school at the heart of its community.
