Key Employment celebrated our 25th Anniversary on the IDPWD with a big party at our new premises in West High Street. Over 250 people from our community joined in the festivities with staff, clients, employers and community members coming together for a night of relaxed celebration. There was African drummers, a food market celebrating the many wonderful cultures that are seen across the Coffs Coast; a magician; prize giveaways; an amazing welcome to country; a great band, a photo booth; some inspiring speeches and plenty of dancing. The highlight of the evening was seeing CEO and founder of Key Employment Chris Worboys receive the Hall of Fame award for his lifetime of work helping people with disability achieve their dreams.
Key Employment COO Jodi Wood said “A lot of work went into the organisation of this party and I am thrilled with the end result. Seeing so many from our community coming together having fun and celebrating such a wonderful company. Key Employment has helped change the lives of so many people and are such big supporters of the Coffs Community. It was an amazing night celebrating this. Now bring on the next 25 years!”

“I found the course to be interesting and have learnt a lot about animals. It has pointed me in the direction of my future which is looking brighter. I met new friends and highly enjoyed the trips we went on. I also loved the teacher; she is beautiful.”
“I am happy with the friendliness and helpfulness from everyone at Key Training. I have gained knowledge and skills about business which will help me in the future. I am really thankful to be helped and can’t wait to complete the course.”
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
