About CH SEA

In late 2020, several social enterprises undertook a six-month project, led by CQUniversity, to promote social entrepreneurship across Central Highlands’ communities. This project mapped the range of contributors in the region’s social enterprise ecosystem. Additionally, the project identified the need for ongoing support to continue to develop and advocate for social enterprises in the region. To nurture social enterprises, to increase and take advantage of the number of opportunities in the Central Highlands and create positive impact on our communities, it was collectively decided to establish the Central Highlands Social Enterprise Alliance (CH SEA).

Our Vision

is for inclusive local leadership and systems that support social enterprise opportunities in the Central Highlands.
