Rangatahi

Leaders of tomorrow

Rangatahi

We support Rangatahi to navigate their health and wellbeing

Childrens Team

The Children’s Team approach is a way of working hand in hand with families and whānau to create safer lives for at-risk children. It's not another service, but it’s a different approach. We have skilled Lead Professionals who work together with whanau, other agencies, non-government organisations and communities to put the child first and ensure their voices are heard. Together we share information and create one plan for each child.

Holiday Programme

Our holiday programmes are, safe, loads of fun and jam packed with a variety of activities for children and Rangatahi aged 11-19years. Come and join us in the next school holidays and meet new friends and our team. Check our panui page to see when the next free school holiday programme is on.

Youth and Adult AOD services provide strategies to prevent and intervene with potential substance abuse issues, reducing harm caused by alcohol and drug use with the support of brief interventions for relapse and follow-up. Our staff can make referrals into residential treatment if required.

We provide support for children and adolescents up to 19 years old and their families/whānau who have low to moderate mental health problems such as, anxiety disorder, depression, low moods, suicidal thoughts and feelings, self-harm and associated drug and alcohol misuse. We deliver services within Kawerau and Murupara and work closely with Voyages ICAMHS.

Physical Health & Nutrition

We offer nutrition and health knowledge and promote physical activity to inspire healthy and active Rangatahi and their whanau. The service aims to develop whanau as champions of healthy lifestyles. We can offer education on healthy eating on a budget, basic health checks and tailor a program to suit your needs.

We provide a walk-in clinic with a Registered Nurse that is available Monday to Friday. The service offers sexual and reproductive health information, education and advice on but not limited to; staying safe, contraception, STI’s and puberty.

Tikanga Wānanga

We offer Tikanga Programs that offer Māori philosophy, values, knowledge and practices to foster the regeneration of Māori identity and values. Our programmes are designed to improve Rangatahi motivation to understand their offending and increase their interest in engaging with other cultural interventions that will reduce their likelihood of re-offending.
