About Us

Weave Youth & Community Services provides a range of services to socially excluded young people, women, children and families in the heart of Sydney. A large proportion (66%) of people who access our services are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.  


Our head office is based in the Redfern/Waterloo area located next to the Skate Park at Waterloo Oval.


Weave (formerly South Sydney Youth Services) was established in 1976 by a group of local parents who were concerned about the welfare of children on the street late at night.


Weave is governed by a Board and managed by a team of professionals. We are a registered not for profit organisation which has been incorporated as an association since 1993.


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

  • Families get the right help to support their children and teenagers, including parenting programs.
  • Women and children to be safe and free from violence
  • Counselling is available for those who would not usually get access.
  • Young people get access to tutoring 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.





Weave works with young people, children, women and families in the heart of Sydney.
