About Real Ideas

At Real Ideas we believe in a better and fairer world; where society values more than just money, where learning is exciting, relevant and opens a lifetime of opportunities, and where people can connect and be part of something meaningful that helps them move forward in life. In short, we exist to make positive social change.

The impact of our work is varied and wide reaching. We create social impact through delivering high quality, customer-focused experiences; from learning and professional support and development through to arts and entertainment, engaging with thousands of people every year. We make a positive difference in key places and communities through the buildings we develop and the regeneration we create around them.

Creating a welcoming environment with excellent food, great spaces and a stimulating programme is vital to our success.

We have a vision for what a better future could look like, but there’s no point us going alone; the only way forward is together. That’s where you come in.
