Creating Jobs Through Social Enterprise

We exist to create jobs for disadvantaged Australians by linking business and government to social enterprises

By 2021, Social Traders goal is to generate 1,500 jobs for disadvantaged Australians.

To do this we will create a community of 95 buyer members and 600 certified social enterprise suppliers and facilitate $105 million in procurement spend.

We do this because we believe buying from social enterprise represents the greatest untapped potential in generating positive, sustainable social impact in Australia.

By adopting a more purposeful approach, business and government have the power to create real change and bring disadvantaged people into the labour market; whether they’re young people, people with a disability, the long term unemployed or recently arrived migrants and refugees.
