Our social enterprises

What is a social enterprise?

A Social Enterprise is a business venture which allows financial and social values to co-exist.

It is a business driven by a social purpose that is at the heart of what they do. The profits generated by the business are re-invested to support the fulfilment of the social purpose.

Whilst there is no fixed definition for a social enterprise, we like this one from Social Enterprise Council of Canada.

Social enterprises are one more tool for non-profits to use to meet their mission to contribute to healthy communities.

Our social enterprises

Sonder operates social enterprises, such as Solasta and Sonder IT that aim to be financially sustainable while providing social benefits to local communities.

Our social enterprises enable us to remain independent, innovative and inclusive with the revenue generated from the enterprises being reinvested back into Sonder.

These small surpluses of income enable Sonder to continue to provide innovative services for clients that align with the organisation’s values and social purpose, beyond allocated funding.

At Solasta, the revenue generated is also re-directed back into the organisation itself to fund student placements and internships.

This not only provides Solasta clients the option to access free mental health services, delivered by Students and Interns but it also contributes to building the capacity of South Australia’s future mental health workforce.

Solasta

Based just 10 minutes from the CBD in Klemzig, Solasta offers a range of fee-for-service, evidence based assessment and psychological therapy services for adults, children, young people and their families.

Sonder IT

SonderIT has been successfully delivering IT solutions to the medical and small business sector since 2008. The committed team is dedicated to assisting clients to establish, maintain and optimise the efficiency of the information technology to build value for their business.
