The Innovess Project
Welcome to The Innovess Project, a collaborative initiative aimed at breaking down the barriers that hinder social ptogress and economic growth in Somerset. We're currently in the design phase of this unique model that combines innovative solutions with social development initiatives to create a more equitable and prosperous society for all. Our goal is to identify and address social issues that are hindering progress, enabling businesses and individuals to thrive in an environment that encourages growth and innovation.
Economic Growth and Sustainability
Evelvate Health and Wellbeing
Innovation is at the heart of The Innovess Project. We strive to facilitate a culture of innovation, continuous improvement, and learning. Our model utilises local knowledge, insight, and innovation to provide effective solutions to social issues. We believe that evidence-based decision-making is critical to achieving these goals. That's why we will use data and intelligence to analyse trends on current and emerging issues, monitor project progress, and return on investment. Our inclusive membership model collects data from diverse groups across the population, ensuring that we address any biases in the decision-making process.
Chances for All
Building Resilient Communities
Collaboration is key to our success. We facilitate partnership working and collaboration towards strategic goals, offering centralised access to resources, skills, and knowledge across key stakeholders. Our members will represent the community, business, voluntary, and government members. We are working towards a coordinated approach to address local issues, including workforce development and training, mental health and wellbeing, equal chances to opportunities in life, and resilient communities.
A sustainable financial model is critical to the success of The Innovess Project. We strive to create multiple funding streams that generate income and don't rely on long-term donations. We believe that addressing local issues is critical to creating a sustainable future for Somerset. Together, we can create a more prosperous and equitable society for all.

The growing need for sustainable business growth and the importance of social progress to sustain profitability is highlighted in an article featured in the prestigious Somerset Chamber magazine, bringing further attention and support to the Innovess Project.
The project's potential impact on driving social progress and boosting local economies captures the attention of a national data organisation that provides support to councils, leading to expressed interest in backing The Innovess Project.
