CoAct’s real impact is found in the transformation of people’s lives through sustained employment, and the positive flow-on effects this has in the community.
Then there’s our collective impact, sharing ideas across our network to positively impact more and more lives across the country.
Working with communities in remote, regional and metropolitan areas
- CoAct understands that each community has its own unique challenges which stimulates new thinking.
- We invest in community programs which are sometimes unfunded, but which deliver essential services that would not otherwise exist
- We work closely with local communities to find new ways to help and discover better ways of delivering and funding existing services
- Pilot programs are then carefully planned, connected with partners, resourced and track
It might be we learn that Indigenous job seekers experience a higher success rate when they are a paired with an indigenous mentor. Or we might create a training program that uses at-risk boys’ love of smash-up derbies to teach them the panel beating trade and get them off the streets.
Our national reach allows us to share our knowledge. So, if it works in Perth, it might work in Brisbane – and it’s our job to see if it does!
Making change happen
CoAct’s ability to innovate has been made possible by listening closely and identifying the needs and strengths of our job seekers, tailoring the assistance we provide and collaborating with our partners to make change happen.
If you have an idea, program or service to make an impact in communities across Australia then we would love to hear from you.
