Social innovation is a process of developing new and innovative responses to existing social problems, when business-as-usual responses aren’t working - making better use of our limited resources, to make a better society in the face of large and systemic problems.
- Community engagement

Supporting people with disability in the criminal justice system
We partnered with RMIT’s Centre for Innovative Justice (CIJ) to create Supporting Justice, a resource to fundamentally change how people with disability are treated and supported in the criminal justice system, through inclusive collaboration, capability resource building, and accessible information design.
More just, equal, and sustainable futures
At Paper Giant, we care about innovation because we want to build a better society for everyone. We want to look for new approaches to problem solving - ones that make things better, not worse.
For us, better means a world that is more just, more equal, and more sustainable.
By applying design, research and strategy, we work to understand community needs and the wider system in which a small change might have positive impact, the wider context in which services will be used, or the wider context in which policy will drive positive change.
It’s about articulating and testing assumptions, and reaching shared understandings - of both the social problems we face, and the solutions to them that will actually work.
