Manly Warringah Waratahs Community Partners


Ending youth homelessness cannot be achieved by one person or one organisation alone. That’s why we are very happy each time we enter into a new partnerships with local organisations to support our young people to reach their full potential.

We are delighted to partner with The Manly Warringah Waratahs which took off to a flying start! The Waratahs entered into the Northern Beaches Pub2Pub with their male and female players, coaching staff and officials kicking off this amazing partnership.

Their team ranked third and raised the most money of any team in the race. We are so grateful and impressed.

Phill Edwards from Manly Warringah Waratahs offered to help Burdekin and his enthusiasm is nothing short of contagious. Thank you so much to Phill and the team. We appreciate your commitment to local young people and look forward to the future of this partnership

The second time The Manly Warringah Waratahs supported us was at HomeSweet2019, a sleepover organised by Link Wentworth to benefit three local charities including us.

First Grade Captain Jay Lenton joined us as the official Ambassador and MC for the night and did an amazing job. He spoke about the importance of community in helping to prevent homelessness. The event raised $181,914.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal people of the Cadigal and Gayamaygal Clans. We acknowledge the Country on which we live, work, and gather as being Aboriginal land.

We acknowledge the lands, waterways and skies that are connected to Aboriginal people. We honour them and pay our deepest respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

We respect their rightful place within our communities, and we value their ancient cultural knowledge and practices.

We deeply value that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the oldest living culture in the world and we will continue to work with their peoples and communities to ensure their cultures endure and remain strong.
