Weave Youth Family Community

Weave provides a range of services to socially excluded young people, women, children and families in the Sydney Metropolitan area. A large proportion of people who access our services are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

Our Vision: A strong, connected community that values its’ members with opportunities and justice for all.

Our Mission: To support children, young people, families and communities to value each other and create opportunities to realise their goals and dreams.

Weave (formerly South Sydney Youth Services) was established in 1975 by a group of local parents who were concerned about the welfare of children on the street at night. Then, the service employed one worker in an outreach capacity – in 2012 we now employ 34 staff.

Your support for Weave is vital to ensure our quality programs can continue. In particular, we need your donations to assist, so that:

  • Families get the right help to support their children and teenagers, including parenting programs.

  • Counselling is available for those who would not usually get access.

  • Young people get access to educational opportunities.

  • Young people with mental health and/or drug and alcohol issues get timely, holistic support.

  • Disadvantaged children get access to quality, social, recreational and support programs.

  • Young people are diverted from the Juvenile Justice System.
