Northern Beaches Women's Shelter

Shelter begins with community. The Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter provides critical support to homeless women by providing crisis accommodation, safety and access to community services, and has assisted over 500 residents since they opened their doors in November 2010. All of this is achieved by a small, professional team, backed by a strong band of trained volunteers.

We’re proud to be fundraising for the NBWS and supporting their invaluable work in the community.

"MoWaNa Northern Beaches Safe Space is a non-clinical drop in style place available to anybody who is feeling anxious, distressed, suicidal, lonely, overwhelmed, scared and / or depressed. MoWaNa's volunteer “peer care companions” have lived experience and have been trained to help in your time of need. They will welcome you, hold space for you, listen and NOT judge you. They will help you find warm connections to other appropriate and reliable supports if that’s what you need and have a trauma informed No Wrong Door approach. All is confidential and can be anonymous if preferred. You are welcome to come back time and time again. MoWaNa hopes to be open 24/7 one day but at the moment you can drop in on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights between 5 and 9pm.

Avalon Youth Hub

The Avalon Youth Hub is a free youth mental health and service navigation hub that provides a collaboration of services in the Avalon area. The Hub was established in 2018 due to a dire shortage of mental health services in the Pittwater area. They offer free counselling, case management, and a range of activities, events and workshops that respond to the needs of young people aged 12-24. Their vision is to create a strong Northern Beaches community that can find help when needed.

Their collaboration of support services includes: KYDS Youth Development Service, Mission Australia Northern Sydney, Headspace Brookvale, Lifeline Northern Beaches, KALOF, Northern Beaches Council and The Burdekin Association. 

If you’re interested in checking out the Hub, on a Wednesday afternoon they hang out at Dunbar Park in Avalon handing out Zooper Doopers, playing music, and connecting with the community 🌞

They have open spaces for counselling and support now for people who live in the Pittwater area. Don’t be afraid to text 0487 936875 or send them an insta dm!
