Our vision is to create a thriving Social Enterprise sector that significantly contributes to a more inclusive and equitable Australia.
Our mission is to work collaboratively to deeply integrate Social Enterprises into business and government supply chains.
Social Traders is the pioneer of Social Enterprise Procurement in Australia. We are the only Social Enterprise certifier and intermediary dedicated to connecting businesses and governments with Social Enterprises. We use our unrivalled sector intelligence to disrupt business as usual and make buying from Social Enterprises the norm.
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.
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.
