Our service partners

CoAct is the leading national network of locally embedded, not-for-profit employment service providers.

“There is nothing more important than helping people who are socially excluded in our community move towards work and lifelong learning. I do think it has to be combined with community building and social engagement though. So it’s not just about a job, it’s actually about people connecting with their community.”

- Steve Lawrence AO, founding member of Job Futures / CoAct

We believe in the incredible power of connection

For over 25 years, CoAct has been at the forefront of empowering individuals to connect with life-changing opportunities through employment.
