About Social Change Central

It’s an exciting time for social enterprise in Australia with more than 20,000 social enterprises now operating.

Despite the recent growth and interest in the sector there are several factors holding it back from reaching its full potential as a catalyst for widespread change. One major hurdle is the time consuming effort required to find the ever-increasing number of funding and capacity building opportunities.

The latest opportunities are typically found via closed Facebook groups, Google searches or organisation-specific newsletters. As a result, many of our most eager and promising entrepreneurs don’t find the support they need to get their ideas off the ground. Potentially life changing ideas stay just that – great ideas.

Social enterprises can be a powerful driver of positive change. We believe encouraging increased support for social enterprises and connecting them with available opportunities is a critical step in this process.

What is Social Change Central

Social Change Central (SCC) is Australia’s first dedicated online hub for social enterprises. SCC connects, encourages and supports social enterprises and aspiring entrepreneurs through an easy-to-use, comprehensive self-service database which collates the most up-to-date opportunities available in Australia and internationally.
