Rethink Ireland provides cash grants and business support to the social innovations who can make a real difference. Our task is to fuel these innovations with the knowledge and the advice they’ll need to succeed on a nationally impactful scale.

Rethink Ireland help open doors and give them access to the networks and connections who can help them spread their ideas throughout Ireland. We nurture communities of like-minded organizations who come together to share thoughts and approaches.

There are the more widely known social innovations like Food Cloud, Alone and GIY, then there are those quietly changing the lives of communities for better. The real life examples listed here will help paint a bigger picture!
