About Centre for Social Impact

The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) is a national research and education centre dedicated to catalysing social change for a better world. CSI is built on a collaboration of three leading Australian universities: the University of NSW Sydney, Swinburne University of Technology, and The University of Western Australia.

Through innovative tools and insights (collated, distilled, tested and validated by CSI over the last two years), organisations, businesses, and governments can identify pressure points and work together to find solutions to address Australia’s complex social problems and improve and transform lives.

In Australia, $510 billion is spent on social purpose programs and initiatives, yet measuring the effectiveness of this spend is difficult. There is demand for better data, evidence, best practices, and outcome reporting. It is well known that some organisations don’t have the resources to measure impact correctly or identify which programs work and are therefore worthy of replication. Amplify Online will help address this. It will help the social purpose sector measure, demonstrate, and improve its social impact. Amplify Online seeks to support people working for social change to have access to the knowledge and resources required to be data-driven and outcomes-focused so they can improve people’s lives and create a stronger, better society. This is all provided via a technological platform known as Amplify Social Impact Online.
