About Us

The Australian Centre for Social Innovation exists to identify and support the innovative ideas, methods and people that will contribute to and accelerate positive social change.

To turn bold ideas into better lives.

Basically, we are a social innovation laboratory (more a 'do-tank' than a 'think tank') with the twin roles of testing ideas, methods and projects and brokering partnerships (developing relationships) between all the different players in the social innovation space (from individuals to community groups, companies to government).

We will bring together all sectors of society to find ways for it to be more resourceful, adaptive and resilient in tackling the big economic, social, environmental and cultural challenges of this century. Our aim is to find better ways of addressing unmet social needs and better methods for innovation in the social sphere.
