Social Impact Hub, Westpac Foundation and Social Traders are collaborating with leading corporates to offer pro bono business support to social enterprises to help them through the COVID-19 crisis.
The collaboration will draw on the skills of corporate Australia, including Westpac, MinterEllison and others, with employees volunteering their time to provide pro bono business support. Members of the Social Impact Hub’s Professional Impact Network and the CAST Professionals network are also volunteering their time to support social enterprises at this difficult time.
To be eligible to access this program your enterprise must:
- be operating in Australia;
- be sourcing or working towards sourcing the majority of its revenue through trade of socially or environmentally sustainable products or services rather than through grants, donations; and
- have a mission to directly address social, cultural or environmental needs through the trade of goods and services rather than indirectly through socially responsible practices.
Social enterprises will have the opportunity to be supported by experts in areas such as business strategy, accessing government financial support, managing human resources and legal support, based on their business needs. This support will be provided over 3-6 months. Don’t miss out. Apply now.
