Major social problems including crime, climate change and poverty that existing structures and policies have found impossible to crack are being tackled by social innovation, according to a new report by the Young Foundation.

The think tank cites several examples including Freecycle, Food Coops and Complaints Choirs that is says governments must recognise as an alternative to traditional policies and structures.

Mike Hurley, from the Complaints Choir of Birmingham, and Robin Murray, co-author of the Young Foundation's report, examines the rise of this novel social innovation.
