The Ideas Mine is a social business development consultancy. We enjoy unraveling complex issues and presenting simple, insightful solutions.

The Ideas Mine offers practical, informed and creative thinking. We work with clients in the public, third and private sectors to help them to make the most of their potential.

We make good things happen.


The Ideas Mine’s ambition is to support innovation in the third sector, and our goal is to see the organisations that we work with become sustainable. While we specialise in strategic organisational development, we know that there is another very important dimension to any successful organisation: people development.

For that reason, we are pleased to be partnering with Coaching York, a social enterprise which specialises in developing the skills, confidence and belief that the people within the organisations we work with need if they are to make positive and sustainable change.

For information about how Coaching York can help you, contact Geoff Ashton on 07735 467598 or email him at geoff.ashton21@gmail.com.
