Weave Youth & Community Services stands on the land of the Gadigal and Bidjigal people. Over our 44 year history, numerous Aboriginal community members, clients, staff and Board Members have guided our work as an organisation and taught us how to walk alongside them. We honour the resilience and strength of First Nations people and recognise their ongoing fight for self-determination.
Weave always has and always will stand on Aboriginal land alongside our Aboriginal communities. This short film has been produced alongside our Aboriginal Staff Group, as part of Weave’s commitment to working in culturally safe and responsive ways. The film was created to acknowledge Aboriginal people as the Traditional owners of the land we work on and their ongoing connection to land and place.
The film features Weave’s Aboriginal staff members and Board members as well as clients and community members who share what ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’ means to them.
Weave has an in-depth understanding of the complex social issues faced by Aboriginal people and their communities. Our range of programs tackle the impacts of intergenerational trauma and disadvantage, and create a way up and a way forward for those seeking our support.
