Weave is a place based non-government organisation that supports children, young people, women, families and communities who have been impacted by systemic disadvantage and intergenerational trauma. With a 45 year track record, Weave has strong connections, experience and trust across the communities it services and the systems in which it operates, including government, families, local community and local NGOs.
