The Social Story is reimagining how social media agencies are run, putting impact into every part of how we operate.
What We Stand For
We strive to use social media for good, by cultivating positive communities and practising conscious and responsible storytelling for our content creation.
We create content & communities that are inclusive. We strive to shine light and amplify voices of diverse communities across borders.
We work with companies striving to make an impact, and support organisations that work towards our humanity’s greater good.
We champion gender equality by partnering with organisations driving the change. We are equal opportunity employers, maintaining gender balance in our team.
We aim to work with companies putting sustainability as their forefront. We also strive to educate our audience on several environmental justice & issues.
We want to ensure the equal experience for people of all abilities to our digital content. We are working with Avenue Coworking to provide work opportunities and constantly improve our content.
We work with purpose-driven brands that want to create a positive impact. We’ll help you enhance your commitments to diversity, sustainability and positivity. And we’ll make sure that shines through in the stories you tell on social.

OUR COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION
We are proud to be a member of Pride By Side, a network of global partners, experts, and allies communities striving for a world that is safe, just, and equitable for LGBTIQ+ people.
We provide knowledge, networks, tools, or work directly one-one-one with initiatives in need.
We are a member of the Social Enterprise Council of NSW and ACT (SECNA). SECNA is a sector-led peak body that exists to:
- Engage and connect the social enterprise sector in NSW and ACT
- Secure investment and policy change for the sector
- Be an organisation that can sustain and grow our impact
We are a friend of the Fair Trade Association of Australia.
Friends of Fair Trade are a community of people who understand the importance of Fair Trade and how it links our everyday consumer decisions to the lives of artisans, workers and farmers in developing countries. Grow your social justice knowledge of Fair Trade, participate in campaigns or just support local business members by buying their products.
We are a certified Clean Creatives Agency. That means we pledge not to work for fossil fuels polluters and are committed to a sustainable future for the creative industry.
The biggest part of any agency’s pollution footprint is the work they do for their clients — and the footprint of fossil fuel clients is massive.
Fossil fuel corporations are the world’s leading polluters, and the biggest greenwashers – and they have no substantive plans to change. Even as their campaigns focus on renewable energy, 99% of their investments are spent on producing more oil and gas.
