Finding Yellow, a disability service in the Cessnock LGA that started close to 40 years, won a $100 gift card for completing Advance Cessnock City’s Business Capability Survey.
The survey will be the driver of future programming, and inform what can be done to support and nurture existing businesses; plan for growth and attract meaningful jobs into the region.
Finding Yellow was formerly Cessnock Hostel, a non-profit which has seen huge growth in the last two years. A team of 45 part and full-time staff now support about 70 people in the LGA with independent living and community-based support.
Chief executive officer Andrew Warren said Cessnock had a great sense of community, which meant good support for local business.
But it was often a challenge to attract and retain skilled and appropriately qualified workers.
