National Social Enterprise Sector Forum 26 March 2020

Social enterprises from across Australia met online 26 March 2020 to discuss the COVID-19 virus and the impacts, solutions and relief and recovery initiatives and why now is the perfect time for social enterprises to come together. Leaders from the social enterprise and small business sector discussed:

  • the challenges and opportunities the COVID-19 outbreak presents for Social Enterprises and their communities
  • relief packages from federal and state governments 
  • the potential benefits represented through social procurement 
  • initiatives and plans to support the sector 
  • inspiring ways to pivot your business to meet the challenges

Now more than ever we need to think beyond business as usual.
