If you have ever enjoyed any aspect of Glebe (like its cafes, restaurants, shops), lived there yourself or know someone who has, then please take the time to educate yourself about the important role played by the Glebe Youth Service (GYS) and help save it. Whether you are generously left-leaning and deeply care about society and those individuals who are helped by GYS, or you are selfishly right-leaning and want to enjoy your fine-dining in peace and safety and maintain the financial security of restauranteers in Glebe, YOU will want to save the GYS.

I’ve lived in Glebe since the age of 2 and have seen the best and the worst. At the worst of times (some decades past) close friends of mine have been punched in the face, handbags stolen, cars vandalised and I’ve been intimated by a young punk with a knife. People I don’t know have suffered worse, and gang violence has even led to a few deaths. We don’t want those times returning. At the best of times, Glebe is a really close-knit village community, where shop-owners ask about the health of family members, and former students greet you with a smile and share stories of bygone maths lectures. SPREAD THE WORD, make sure everyone knows about the fate of GYS. Save GYS, Save Glebe.
