The Victorian Government’s Social Enterprise Strategy 2021-2025 aims to strengthen and expand Victoria’s social enterprise sector.

The Strategy builds on the strong foundations of the first strategy, released in 2017 - the first of its kind in Australia. The new strategy aims to grow the social enterprise sector and contribute to the creation of jobs for more Victorians. A healthy social enterprise sector creates new jobs and opportunities for people facing barriers to employment and helps build inclusive economic growth.

The Social Enterprise Strategy 2021-2025 comprises actions under four key themes:

  • building business skills and capability and capturing impact
  • enhancing recognition and access to innovative financing to scale impact
  • fostering a connected and innovative social enterprise ecosystem across Victoria
  • opening doors for social enterprises across government.
