Our Core Services
We strive to promote positive change and enhance social outcomes for children, young people and their families/whānau. By providing wrap around support from Community Social Workers, Counsellors and Whānau Support Workers we aim to increase safety, stability, security, wellness and independence.
Youth Support & Mentoring
Youth Support & Mentoring offers confidential support at home, school or at the centre. We encourage and support young people to meet goals, talk about problems, engage in group activities, or receive one-on-one mentoring.
Strengthening Families provides a way for families to get co-ordinated access to services and is run in a way that meets the unique needs of each family/whānau. This builds on the strengths and dreams of families, with support from health, social services, education, and other services that are working together.
