Vision 2030

Vision 2030

To realise our vision, we have a 10 year plan to unlock more than $5b in demand for social enterprises. That will enable social enterprises to create over 44,000 jobs, deliver 6 million training hours, and deliver community services and donations of $128m. We will scale and embed social enterprise procurement nationally, driving major reforms in government and business procurement policy over the next decade.

What is a Social Enterprise?

What is a Social Enterprise?

Social Enterprises are businesses like any other, but they exist specifically to make the world a better place. That could be creating jobs for the most marginalised, providing services or protecting the environment.

Social Enterprises operate in all industry sectors of the economy, from facilities management, to catering and hospitality, to business administration to design.
