Creating positive change at scale

We work to reduce disadvantage and improve systems so individuals and communities can thrive.

Transforming existing systems isn’t easy. It requires deep understanding of our social systems and valuing the experiences of the people interacting within them. It also requires collaboration between not-for-profit organisations, government, corporations and philanthropists.

SVA convenes partnerships that work together to design and scale interventions that respond to the needs of people in crisis, and support prevention.
