"As community transport continues to gather the recognition and demand of communities and governments throughout Australia, TransitCare wanted to respond to the research paper “Community transport of the future”. We worked alongside Social Scaffolding to align the recommendations of this report to the capabilities and capacity of TransitCare both now and into the future. Social Scaffolding conducted extensive research and analysis to deliver a comprehensive report and positioning statement - enabling us to develop opportunities for our important and essential community service."

The Cookery Nook has been in business for over 20 years providing employment pathways and opportunities for people facing disadvantage. Due to a downturn in our business we wanted to review and strategically consider our options - so we engaged Social Scaffolding. The team facilitated a strategic workshop, conducted market research and provided a comprehensive solution for our social enterprise. And we are happy to report that our business has been growing steadily and projections are solid as a result of working alongside Social Scaffolding.
