Map for Impact is a ground-breaking study to identify and map Victoria’s social enterprises and explore their social and economic characteristics.
As part of the wider economy, Victorian social enterprises have historically played an important role in delivering services, fostering economic participation and contributing to social innovation. Australia has a strong history of enterprising third sector organisations – including not for profits, cooperatives and mutuals – delivering goods and services in response to community needs.
Map for Impact seeks to improve and expand on government support for Victorian social enterprises and to position Victoria’s social enterprises as national leaders in driving employment participation and inclusive economic growth. It was commissioned by the Victorian Government as part of its Social Enterprise Strategy.
