SVA Innovation Hub

You can help lead the charge – innovation in the social sector

Innovation is a powerful tool to change people’s lives for the better

At SVA, we’ve been harnessing the power of innovation for over 20 years to create lasting change.

It has been at the heart of many of our proudest moments:

  • Leading the creation of Goodstart Early Learning, now Australia’s largest not-for-profit early learning provider
  • Pioneering social impact bonds in Australia, unlocking new funding sources for promising programs
  • Creating Synergis Fund, a new way to create homes for people with disability, for which SVA was awarded Best CSR Innovation by AFR Boss Most Innovative Companies

It’s clear that innovation has always been a part of the SVA DNA. But doing things differently isn’t straightforward – it takes time and concerted effort to come up with new ways to shift the dial on disadvantage.

That’s why we’re creating the SVA Innovation Hub

With a dedicated Innovation Hub, we’ll be able to create innovative solutions faster and help more people create better lives for themselves. Through the Innovation Hub, we will investigate challenges that are ripe for change and explore promising solutions.

We’re already exploring some initial ‘green shoot’ opportunities in areas like:

  • Ensuring a fair and just transition to a greener society
  • Leveraging technology to improve education
  • New frontiers of impact investing

You can help lead the charge on innovation

We’re looking for bold supporters to help establish the SVA Innovation Hub.
