The Change the Story project follows seven Australians who are changing the story around disability employment. It’s a look into what navigating the world of work means, through the eyes of people with disability, employers, and frontline workers. Read more about the project here.

Join us in the movement for change. Because together, we can change the story.

Priya’s story of support and inclusion

Priya’s story is one of an employer who is determined to help people succeed. Over the past eight years, Priya has worked with CHESS Connect in Coffs Harbour to support her employment needs. In the last five years alone, Priya has employed 18 people with disability in her small business. This is a story that shows the positive impact that a supportive employer can have when they focus on the positives, choose inclusivity and invest in the development of people.

If you’re living with disability, illness or injury and want to find and keep a job, you’ve come to the right place.
We know that navigating the world of work can sometimes be overwhelming and present significant challenges.
That’s where we can help!
