A strong, connected community that values its members with opportunities and justice for all.
To empower people to change their lives.
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.
