Today we are asking for your help for disadvantaged young people in our community, the most vulnerable kids on the Northern Beaches. If you're asking, "why Burdekin?" please know that every dollar we receive goes towards assisting the most disadvantaged. We care and we work hard. Not every child or young person enjoys a safe and stable home, free from violence and neglect. Our care model now also includes young people who would otherwise be detained in custody. We are pulling out all the stops to change and save lives but we cannot do it alone. We need your help.
Your generosity and kindness enables us to change the lives of young people.
