Amplify Social Impact is an innovative, world-first solution that aims to help address complex social problems. It will coordinate and connect people and ideas, and track where funding and initiatives are making a difference in order to improve and transform lives.
There is an urgent need to have a clear, singular vision on how, where, and for whom social impact is occurring. Amplify is an innovative solution that aims to address complex social issues via a three-pronged approach:
- Development of a research agenda to produce rigorous evidence about key social issues (the Evidence Base),
- Engaging industry partners across the business, social business, not-for-profit, academic, and government sectors to identify and pursue innovative solutions (Connecting and Convening for Systems Change Events), and
- Developing an online platform for: understanding if, where, and for whom social problems exist via the Australia’s Social Pulse tool, accurately measuring social impact via the Indicator Engine tool, and reporting and benchmarking social outcomes via the Yardstick tool.
