Djurwa Donates $10,000 to Weave Youth & Community Services

Members of Djurwa's NSW team attended Weave Youth & Community Services Waterloo hub to present a $10,000 donation

On Friday 17th February, members of the Djurwa team visited Weave Youth & Community Services’ Waterloo hub in Sydney to present a donation of $10,000.

Weave began in 1976, when a group of local Aboriginal women in Redfern/Waterloo advocated for services, activities and support for local young people. Since then, services to the community have extended to helping people who face issues such as homelessness, family breakdown, mental health and substance use issues and are impacted by intergenerational trauma and significant systemic disadvantage.

Djurwa employees and directors visited Weave’s Waterloo hub and had a round-table yarn with the Weave team to explore opportunities for the two organisations to collaborate.

Djurwa’s Managing Director, Nathan Martin says he’s proud that Djurwa is able to support an organisation that makes such a tangible difference to the lives of people in our community.

“Djurwa has a focus on empowering people who are incarcerated by giving them meaningful employment opportunities, both during their sentence and after they return to community. The work that Weave does with people who are impacted by the correctional system runs parallel to what we are aiming to achieve at Djurwa” he said.

Weave's CEO, Siobhan Bryson said of the donation "There is still so much work to do, and none of us can do it by ourselves. We are so grateful for support from like-minded partners like Djurwa, who understand the importance of Weave's place-based, community led work. Huge appreciation and respect to Djurwa and Bingo for joining with us to empower people to change their lives".
