Community Lab: started in Scotland by community builders

This project started a long time ago. It was born through a realisation that, despite us living in hyper-connected times, we struggle to harness the human empathy, knowledge and experience we need to create amazing stuff, change our worlds and fulfil all our potential.

It has taken us time to realise the bleeding obvious......trust is key, communities are a fantastic media to share and learn and make mistakes, true collaboration is difficult. And bringing all this together is a tough gig.

So that’s where Community Lab comes in. Providing the essential pieces you need to run your community. Then, add in features like search & support. Telling your story. Discovering and getting discovered.

As our name suggests, there is something experimental in our approach. We know you are unique, and your purpose is important. You want to create an experience that reflects this – and we want to help you do that. The magical chemistry of your community.

Community Lab’s Team are all community builders themselves. They are here to support you. We have a digital framework, a community specifically for you and lots of resources – all free. However, this is just the start. We believe that by working together, sharing lessons and having our members drive our development priorities, we can build the deeper long lasting experiences your community deserves.
