About The Social Deck

The Social Deck is a social business specialising in innovative local change by combining community engagement, participatory design, communication and behaviour change to help organisations tackle local issues and implement innovative ideas.

The Social Deck also provides consultancy services in strategic communication, stakeholder engagement, partnership development and digital strategy to all levels of government, not-for-profits, social enterprises and businesses. The Social Deck's services give you the end-to-end strategy development and project implementation needed to create real change.

We became a B Corp because we want to be part of a movement that shares the belief that businesses must be part of the solution to achieve lasting positive change. The assessment process has helped us to improve the structure and governance of our social business and is a way to show that we are serious about our core purpose. Joining B Corp is also a great opportunity to connect with likeminded businesses in order help to catalyse the broader movement in which business is purposely used as a force for good.

The Change We Seek®

The Social Deck's mission is to help engage more people in ideas, activities and causes that make a positive difference to communities, the environment and individuals.

They are committed to connecting government, industry, business, social enterprise and not-for-profits to better leverage ideas, products and services that create social change. They provide tools and advice to organisations to help them work collaboratively with others to tackle social and environmental issues.

They advocate for local change. They believe that community-based innovation and behaviour change campaigns tailored to communities can have the most impact on social and environmental issues, when supported by policy and funding.

The Social Deck shares a vision and passion for promoting Australian innovation, particularly innovation that helps Australian communities to address social and environmental challenges.
