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!”

“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
