The Queensland Social Enterprise Strategy is the Queensland Government's commitment to supporting the growth of the social enterprise sector in Queensland.

Social enterprises exist to benefit the public and community rather than shareholders and owners. The sector is gaining momentum in Queensland and plays an important role in delivering jobs and training opportunities for disadvantaged Queenslanders.

The strategy outlines 3 key focus areas of targeted support to address the challenges social enterprises face:

  • building capability and capacity in the sector including access to financial support
  • making connections across the sector to increase collaboration and promotional opportunities
  • improving market access by linking social enterprises to procurement opportunities.

Funding of $1 million was announced in the 2019–20 Budget to support the strategy. Further detail will be released shortly on how this funding will be used to further grow the sector.
