STREATwise is STREAT’s knowledge, innovation and consulting arm. We’re focused on expertise and resource sharing to help businesses and social enterprises increase their social and environmental impact through informative e-learns, workshops and webinars. We help innovators design and build evidence-based, people focused programs and projects while assisting other social enterprises to grow. We strengthen social enterprise networks by subsidizing access to tools, learning and development products and more. We’ve worked with 100s of social enterprises, intermediaries, corporates, non-profits, unis, schools, funders and governments, and specialise in design, measurement and evaluation, open innovation and building food social enterprises.
Anywhere, any-time learning delivered through interactive, engaging and educational self-paced online courses. Each e-learn takes around one hour to complete and comes with a Certificate of Completion signed by STREAT’s Chief Impact Officer, Dr. Kate Barrelle, and our therapy dog, Magic.
STREATwise offers professional development on topics like Gender & Sexual Diversity, Resilience & Self Care and Trauma Informed Practice. They’re priced individually or can be purchased in bulk for larger workplaces.

Mental Health First Aid
STREATwise offers an accredited Mental Health First Aid course, held at our flagship Cromwell Studio located in Collingwood, Melbourne, complete with catering from our downstairs cafe and roastery. The two-day accreditation equips individuals with the knowledge and skills to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, and to confidently provide referral information and support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Approximately 20% of Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Many people feel underprepared when speaking with someone they are concerned about regarding their mental health. Mental Health First Aid offers a practical, evidence-based Action Plan to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, and to confidently support individuals to get the help they need. Get in touch with STREATwise to book in a Mental Health First Aid session for your workplace today.

Communities of Pratice
We believe in the power of a strong social enterprise sector, that’s why we coordinate Communities of Practice for social enterprise practitioners to learn and grow together.
If you’re a social enterprise practitioner who is interested in joining our Communities of Practice, get in touch.
We’ve undertaken nearly 100 research projects with a host of universities, students and organisations. These projects have ranged from undergrad student projects to PhDs to large, multi-year ARC-funded research projects with teams of academics. We’ve also shared our stories and learnings in talks and podcasts, a bunch of them being included here too.
Here you’ll find a selection of our applied research, case studies and reflections on our social enterprise journey so far. We hope the sharing of this knowledge might help with your own impact work.
