More Social Enterprises. Better Social Enterprises. Real world learning opportunities. Job creation.

Frankston Mornington Peninsula Primary Care Partnership (under the auspice of Peninsula Health), Chisholm Institute and the Frankston Foundry, have been funded to implement the Frankston Social Enterprise Project for delivery through Chisholm Institute’s Frankston Campus.   

With support from the Victorian Government’s Frankston Revitalisation Program, project partners will be implementing a 12-month project to consult with the local community sector & not-for-profits to identify how they can be supported to initiate and grow social enterprises.  Drawing on expertise from local entrepreneurs & the business school, activities will be piloted to assess their reach & effectiveness. Findings will inform the development a sustainable Frankston Social Enterprise Hub in Chisholm Institute’s Frankston campus.

The vision of the Frankston Social Enterprise Hub is to bring together entrepreneurs, members of the local business community, education providers and students, philanthropists and the community service sector to inspire and support the growth of businesses for social good and increase employment opportunities for disadvantaged populations in the Frankston Mornington Peninsula region.
