On Wednesday 25th October CHESS, together with our contract partner CoAct celebrated the efforts of those who embrace change in their own lives and the people who are willing and able to support that change.

Our event launch was held at the Coffs Jetty Theatre, presenting a series of short films highlighting the journeys of 4 diverse individuals, their employers and support workers who came together to overcome disadvantage and Change their Story.

Over 70 guests from local business, media, council, government and community came together to support this innovative film project.

The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, with many people gaining greater insight into the importance of the work that CHESS do within the community and the power of change for both jobseekers and employers.

Our own staff member Brian was the subject of our featured film that closed the night, a powerful and emotional statement that left a lasting impression on our guests.
