Map for Impact

As part of the wider economy, Victorian social enterprises have historically played an important role in delivering services, fostering economic participation and contributing to social innovation.

The Centre for Social Impact Swinburne (CSI) was commissioned by the Victorian Government in 2017 as part of its first Social Enterprise Strategy to further understand the role of social enterprises across Victoria; considering their size, characteristics and baseline impacts.

Map for Impact has been recognised as part of the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework and played an important role in positioning Victoria’s social enterprises as national leaders in driving employment participation and inclusive economic growth.

After the publication of the research report and the launch of the Map for Impact website , the Victorian Government and CSI Swinburne operated Map for Impact as a ‘live map’ until May 2022.
