The BURDEKIN ASSOCIATION
‘The Burdekin Association provides services to homeless and at risk young people 12-24 as well as their family/carers within the Northern Sydney region with a focus on the Northern Beaches.
We are a community based, not for profit, charitable organisation having been established on the Northern Beaches for close to 40 years. We derive our funding from Family and Community Services, Department of Health as well as contributions and support from the community.
Our mission is ‘That all children, young people and their families are empowered and supported to develop their full potential and have the life skills and opportunities to lead a full and active life in our community’.
The Burdekin Association achieves this through community engagement, individualised support and accommodation options, professional and qualified staff, strengths based/trauma informed support as well as practical assistance. We strive to ensure every child and young person in our care is provided the level of support and opportunity many of their peers have.’
