Yirranma Place is a precinct focused on generating impact for the not-for profit sector and demonstrating the power of social enterprise for change. Two Good Co and ARA Indigenous Services have strong ties to the Foundation’s focus of transitions to employment, highlighting the value of meaningful employment in breaking cycles of disadvantage.
Across the precinct, procurement is undertaken through a social lens, and responsible sourcing from both sustainable and modern slavery perspectives are prioritised. All services have been selected to not only provide for the local community and partners, but to show first-hand the power of collective impact for good.
Yirranma Place prides itself on the collaborative community of precinct members, who share a common purpose; to break cycles of disadvantage in Australia.

Yirranma Place is a not-for profit and philanthropic precinct with social purpose at its heart.About the building
Social Enterprise Incubator
Level Two, Yirranma Place will be home to the Paul Ramsay Foundation's new social enterprise incubator, an initiative that aims to grow the pool and impact of social enterprises and for-purpose organisations working to disrupt disadvantage in Australia.
The incubator will inspire and support purpose-driven individuals, groups, start-ups and entrepreneurs to generate and test new ideas with the potential to break cycles of disadvantage, and to grow the impact of innovative solutions that have already been launched but not yet reached sustainable operations.
The incubator will leverage the Foundation’s approach of collaboration, evidence-led understanding, shared learning, and innovation energy, to advance social enterprise as a vehicle for lasting impact and change.
It is expected to be launched in mid-2022.
