Special Needs Programs

As a community club, we believe giving back and contributing is important for our kids to understand.

Accordingly, Barnies supports various community programs where we believe we can make a difference and provide soccer for those who may not normally have access to the game

The Westgate Baptist Community (WBC) has developed special links with the Karen people of south east Myanmar (Burma) and especially the people in some of the refugee camps along the Thai border.

Importantly, the WBC has been instrumental in bringing out several families as refugees to settle in Australia, and have provided social, language and material aid.

Barnies has been able to assist the Karen community to further participate in community life by sponsoring various children to play soccer at Barnies.

Barnies takes great pride in being able to Support the Karen Community with our ongoing sporting assistance.
