Across the northern beaches, The Burdekin Association provides accommodation options, support and hope to young people and, when appropriate, their families. Our aim is to ensure young people have a safe place to live, are cared for, can work through their early trauma, complete school, learn how to pay the bills, clean their bedroom, to strive to be all that they can be, to aim high, complete university get their dream job and live the life they want.
Our success rate is high, with over 90 % of the children and young people we work with completing education, securing work and moving home or to independence. Completely free from a life of disadvantage.
With the support we are receiving from our donors, business and the government, we can continue to assist our clients and offer a high-quality service – the same quality of service Anna received and every child/young person has a right to receive.
