Our Story

Our Highlights

There is an 'us' because of the generosity of many individuals and organisations who have made The Platform possible. We as the team here are custodians of the space, the vision, to do our part in bringing together a community that exists for others.

Our doors officially opened in March 2017 as an events space, partnering with people and organisations who are passionate about making a difference to their world. As our name states, we are a 'platform' and it is all about our members, their work, their impact and at the center of it all, people. 

As we interacted with our partners and listened to their stories we identified a new opportunity for bringing community and connection in the not-for-profit and social enterprise sector. It was from here that we embarked on a new project - Purpose Studio. Purpose Studio launched in mid-2018 and is a space created just for purpose driven organisations that are making an impact in our community.
