How is your social enterprise
impacted by coronavirus?


Social distancing and event cancellations are devastating social enterprises across Australia with thousands of staff and contract workers losing income to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Social enterprises may miss out on vital government support and fall into the gap between coronavirus programs aimed at for-profit small business and the charity sector.

Total estimated impact to the social enterprise sector over the next 6 months – as at 27/05/20:

Total income lost: $8,220,000

Total number of jobs impacted: 320

Total events cancelled: 483
