It’s a simple philosophy: a team is only as strong as its weakest link. That’s why we support projects that benefit our local community and provide significant impact for those who need it most – whether they are socially and financially disadvantaged, socially isolated or have other high needs. So no one is left behind, and we are all stronger for it.
ClubGRANTS recognises the responsibility clubs have to their community. It is designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to our local communities, directly supporting the disadvantaged in the community.
Our Category 1 grants are for specific community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities. In particular, we fund projects and services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community, and that are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.
Norths has a strong connection with Rugby League and we continue to invest in our Junior players. Through annual support to the North Sydney District Junior Rugby League, Norths has been able to supply financial sponsorship that has reached well over half a million dollars across the last five years and also houses the NRL Junior Development Officer for Sydney North.
In the past year we have helped support administration costs for the Junior League competitions, registration and insurance fees for players, trophies, ground hire for over 540 games throughout the season, referee fees, training equipment and education courses including the Elite and the Junior Bears development programs.
Norths continued support of Northbridge FC has been instrumental in funding facility development and coach education, helping the club become Australia’s largest football club with winter playing numbers of over 2,500 and another 1,000 players involved in summer football. Northbridge FC is also home to the North Shore Mariners, the official Sydney-based academy and pathway to the Central Coast Mariners A League Team.
Northern Suburbs Netball Association (NSNA) has 6,000 members making it one of Australia’s largest netball associations. NSNA and Norths have partnered together to support the netball community on the Lower North Shore with Norths taking on the Gold Level sponsorship.
Norths supports sport across all areas of our community. We offer a whole range of special interest community and sporting Intra clubs. Everyone is welcome to join and give something new a go.

We understand the significance of the role we play in our community, so it’s important that we lead the way in sustainable and environmental practices. Through our water-saving measures, we’ve saved 9.5 Olympic-size swimming pools of water. Through using less energy in our everyday activities, we’ve saved 257 cars’ worth of CO2 emissions. And we’ve installed a Pulp Master System in the kitchen to remove food waste from the general waste collection and put it into fertiliser production instead. Because every little bit counts.
