What's the Pulse of our social enterprise sector?

Launched in mid-2020, CSI’s national Pulse of the For-Purpose Sector research program aims to provide insights into the effects of COVID-19 on the Australian for-purpose sector. This month we’re excited to share our first 'deep dive' report from the program which is centered on social enterprises. Our full Pulse of the For-Purpose Sector report will be released soon.

Community mental health supports research launched
CSI UWA was proud to launch the ‘Increasing and Improving Community Mental Health Supports in Western Australia’ report earlier this month, in partnership with the Western Australian Association for Mental Health. The report presents six models of innovative community mental health support that considers the needs of people who are less likely to access support, due to service gaps or barriers to engagement.

Hear from CSI's Dr Emma Lee in this ABC Hobart radio interview: "Reconciliation to me is about belonging to each other. We need to love, love, love. We need to have kinship and reciprocity...when we belong to each other we’re included in this wonderful place that we call home.


We're excited to partner with AGSM at UNSW Business School again to run our 2-day Governance for Social Impact course in Sydney on 25 & 26 March. Learn to govern with a ‘mission-first’ agenda and gain the tools and knowledge you need to navigate the social purpose ecosystem.


Watch the recording of our impact2020 webinar with Infoxchange last month to learn more about the results of their 2020 'Digital Technology in the Not-for-Profit Sector' report. You'll also hear from organisations that have used tech to ensure they can keep making an impact during COVID-19.
