About Weave Youth & Community Services:

At Weave we believe when people are supported, they are empowered to change their own lives.

Since 1976, we have been providing a range of services and support to children, young people, families and communities who face complex issues and difficult circumstances.

About the role:

It provides court support and advocacy and wraparound casework tailored to the needs and goals of each client.

Creating Futures works with people aged 18-30 years living in, or with a strong connection to, the City of Sydney Local Government Area.

The Creating Futures caseworker will be responsible for developing relevant networks and providing comprehensive, holistic, intensive client-centred casework support to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander offenders a genuine chance at creating a future that does not involve the criminal justice system, and the provision of pre and post release support and court support and advocacy for mainly Aboriginal offenders in the City of Sydney LGA.
