Corsham Institute (Ci) is a not-for-profit organisation working for a fair, inclusive, prosperous and creative society based on trust and security.

Our work focuses on education and research, going beyond traditional ideas of knowledge to promote lifelong learning in the digital age. We empower citizens to develop the critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills they need to make the most of the opportunities our increasingly networked, connected and data-rich society provides.

Our work across Research, Learning and Enterprise develops the increasingly important skills we as individuals, communities and society require to live our lives socially, economically and engaged in the civic society.

To do this we work to:

  • build confident communities
  • encourage individual responsibility
  • advocate for change on behalf of the citizen
  • provide a platform for new ways of learning
  • actively seek out collaborative partnerships.

Impact is critical.  We actively measure outcome and impact in the following 6 key areas:

  • Knowledge: a change in a citizen's knowledge and awareness
  • Emotional: a change in how a citizen feels, and the psychological benefits
  • Behavioural: a change in a citizen's behaviour
  • Economic: a financial change
  • Opportunity: an increase in opportunities for a citizen
  • Health and well-being: a change in a citizens’ health and well-being.
