Venue: 442 Tuam Street

Presenter: Ken Howard, Switched On

LIndsay Jeffs, Social Enterprise Institute

As an established business, they are well positioned to lead community initiatives that generate positive social outcomes.  They have developed a Social Impact Strategy that focuses on providing a hand up to struggling New Zealanders by helping them to access and maintain meaningful employment. They achieve this through innovative partnerships with local community organisations and by incorporating social procurement into their supply chain.  The aim is to address identified social needs in the communities and provide employment and upskilling to community members who are struggling to find work for a variety of reasons. "Doing good" has become a fundamental part of their business model.

 Currently, Switched On are working with four community initiatives that are having a social impact in their community:

1. Kaiapoi Community Care and Employment Trust to establish a social enterprise offering employment opportunities working as a sub-contractor on the Housing New Zealand maintenance

programme carrying out carpentry and painting work.

2. Shirley Community Trust (SCT) to establish a social enterprise providing employment to local young people carrying out yard work on HNZ properties within their community plus a feasibility study to create a

community led development programme to address the intergenerational social and economic issues in the Shirley area.

3. Odyssey House Drug Rehabilitation Programme who as part of Switched On social procurement stream supply window sashes and frames for HNZ properties. 4

4. BCITO and Hillmorton High School by providing work experience opportunities for Year 12 & 13 students.

 Switched On are looking to extend their partnership model to other community organisations and businesses who are interested in making a positive social impact in their community.

 Ken Howat will outline how their  organisation works to establish a new social enterprise by firstly identifying what community needs or issues they could have a positive impact on, then approach a community group directly to see if they would consider partnering with Switched On  .

 Lindsay Jeffs, Social Enterprise Institute  will update participants on the latest thinking in the community owned business sector and how community organisations can adapt their business model to achieve greater social impact and financial independence.
