About OSII

OSII leads the implementation of the NSW Social Impact Investment Policy (PDF 238.43KB). We work with our partners to facilitate allocation of capital into initiatives that can achieve positive and measurable social and environmental outcomes alongside financial return.

Our vision is to grow social impact by embedding innovation, prevention, partnerships, and an outcomes-focus at the heart of how we deliver impact for the people of NSW.
