About The Social Deck
As a B-Corp certified social business, The Social Deck reinvests its profits back into projects, resources and services that have a positive impact on society and the environment.
Our experienced team of directors and network of consultants have diverse backgrounds in Australian public policy, social services, health, environment, community development, Indigenous affairs, resources and business. We understand the challenges facing communities and the value that effective communications, community and stakeholder engagement and collaboration bring to organisations, from national entities to local community groups.
Our mission is to help engage more people in ideas, activities and causes that make a positive difference to communities, the environment and individuals.
We encourage collaboration and are committed to connecting government, industry, business, social enterprise and not-for-profits to better leverage ideas, products and services that create social change.
We advocate for investment in local change because we believe community-based innovation and behaviour change that is tailored to the specific needs of communities has the most impact.
We advocate for the sharing of ideas and innovations because we believe in Australians making ideas happen and that Australian innovation will be a catalyst to help communities address social and environmental challenges.
We support the idea that business can have positive impact. As a B-Corp certified business we use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and are recognised as meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
