Office of Social Impact Investment

The Office of Social Impact Investment (OSII) is a joint team of the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) and the NSW Treasury. The office has been established as an initiative of the NSW Government to work with its partners and facilitate growth in the social impact investment market.

We oversee and lead the implementation of the NSW Social Impact Investment Policy, working closely with other government agencies and non-government stakeholders. Key elements of this work include developing new social impact investment transactions and building capability and capacity among agencies and others to participate in social impact investing.

We also support the NSW Social Impact Expert Advisory Group and the Social Impact Investment Interjurisdictional Network and work with the Australian Advisory Board on Impact Investing to align and coordinate our activities with other governments and stakeholders.
