Who are we
CHESS Connect (formerly CHESS Employment) is a for-purpose human service organisation that helps local people achieve a strong life through a range of employment, disability and mentorship services.
First established in 1995 as CHESS Employment, a disability employment agency in Coffs Harbour, CHESS Connect has evolved into a dynamic, regional human services organisation. Over the past 20 years we’ve been delivering the highest standard of people-focused services, expanding our footprint north to the Clarence Valley and recently, to the south in the Hastings Valley and Taree regions.
Strong connections are the foundation of health, wellbeing and resilience. This is what drives us forward as an organisation.
We connect with community, we connect with business and most importantly, we connect with people.
