A 'by the community,
for the community' initiative

The Uniting Harris Community Centre, with the support of volunteers and local community members, launched CHEX Community Gift Cards in 2020. Our mission is to support and build a more equal, connected and sustainable community. 

Our mission

To support and build a more equal, connected and sustainable community

CHEX Community Gift Cards are a form of community currency that can be used at our participating businesses. When you shop with CHEX you are supporting individuals, small local businesses and our community around Ultimo as a whole during uncertain times.

What can you do?

Make a donation

Online via bank transfer

Over the phone or in person

100% of donations go straight into CHEX circulation – $10 in donation means one $10 CHEX card being provided to someone in difficulty and used at a local business.

CHEX cards give community-minded folks a new way to access special offers and show appreciation for their favourite locals. They also make a great gift for any occasion – what a win-win! 


CHEX is also available via our Emergency Relief service for anyone in difficulty, including international students and other temporary visa holders.
