More information – Social enterprises are commercially viable businesses existing to benefit the public and the community, rather than shareholders and owners. We believe that the problem of social inequality is real. We know that social enterprise is a key part of the solution – creating jobs and delivering services that create inclusive economic growth. Businesses and Governments have an opportunity to be part of the solution, by buying from social enterprise. Working together, our community is contributing to a more inclusive and equitable Australia.  – SOCIAL TRADERS
