Looking for help?

The Studio Clinics support Victorian social enterprises to get the help they need to navigate the impacts of the 2019-2020 Victorian Bushfires and/or the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Clinics have been developed with generous support from the Victorian Government as part of their Skills Development Program for Social Enterprises.

About The Clinics

The Clinics are free and available to Victorian social enterprises experiencing the impacts of the 2019-20 Bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic. Social enterprises in The Clinics will receive up to 16 hours of one-on-one support provided by our Studio Team and our network of Social Enterprise Advisors.

Informed through solid financial analysis of your organisation, we will work with you to think through practical solutions to respond strategically to the financial and operational issues you may be facing. This support could include financial forecasting, business model re-design and implementation support.

The Studio is also keen to connect with Social Enterprise Advisors – individuals with deep, practical experience in social enterprise who are interested in working with The Studio Clinic team to provide advice and support to participating social enterprises. If you are an experienced social enterprise practitioner with a passion for sharing your knowledge and experience, we encourage you to find out more here.

A note on research

We are also keen to ensure that the experiences social enterprises are facing as a result of the economic shocks of the bushfires and COVID-19 are captured, with a view to building the knowledge and resilience of the social enterprise ecosystem. Therefore, we ask that social enterprises that receive support from The Studio Clinics agree to join our research program. The research won’t take a lot of your time and our research outputs are anonymous; we don’t publish anything that could identify you or your social enterprise without your consent.
