We are CoAct: The power of many

CoAct is a national network of locally-embedded community service providers working together to create social and economic opportunities for Australia’s disadvantaged. This video tells the story of CoAct.

Video transcript:

We are CoAct, we activate communities and this is our story.

But our impact is powerful.

CoAct members are some of the most respected and experienced community organisations in the country. But rather than compete against each other we choose to work with each other.
For the common good of our organisation and for the wider community.

Shared knowledge is a powerful thing.

We have our ears to the ground, we know our local community.

We work with those most in need and help transform their lives.

We talk with them, we teach them, we train them. And empower them with skills and self-confidence. If we need to, we give them somewhere to live and strategies to sort out their personal problems. And then the journey really begins. Because when the right connections are made, extraordinary things can happen.

Last year alone CoAct helped 69,000 jobseekers move towards employment with over 4,000 companies.

Big companies… And small business. Employers like working with us because we provide… committed and capable and employees. We also help them predict and plan for their staffing needs in the future.

We invest more than 90% of all revenue back into the communities in which we live. We develop and deliver many vital services in big cities…

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, so must the services we offer.

We already have networks in place to provide street-smart social solutions.

We solve business problems, we activate communities.We are CoAct, we believe in the Power of Many.
