Australian Social Investment Trust

Asit circle2Australian Social Investment Trust (ASIT) is an independent, sector-neutral, benevolent organisation that enables, neutrally facilitates, operationally manages and coordinates It's Our Place Illawarra Shoalhaven. ASIT does this in partnership with cross-sector government agencies and non-government organisations in the Illawarra Shoalhaven region. ASIT has obtained Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) status, enabling them to work with all sectors to ensure the best alignment of resources to achieve the greatest outcome.

ASIT works to enable long-term, cross-sector collaboration for place-based whole-of-community Collective Impact initiatives. It brings together cross-sector organisations and individuals from across a community to solve highly complex social problems locally. This facilitates genuine collaboration and social innovation to break the cycle of disadvantage.
