EMPOWERING YOUTH TO RISE TO THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
WELCOME TO WHANAKE YOUTH
We are a small team of friendly healthcare professionals who are passionate about the health and wellbeing of the youth in our community. We are excited to see positive change in the lives of our local youth and offer a non-judgmental space to nurture and develop their health and wellbeing.
Whanake means to rise up to the sky,
to move onwards, to spring up,
develop and to grow...
Our brand new Whanake Youth space in Stoke, Nelson offers a warm, safe and friendly space for local youth aged 11-25 to come and hang out, get creative and find answers and support for any general concerns or health worries.
Our goal is to raise the quality of care for young people across the district, from Nelson through Tasman, by providing youth services such a professional healthcare, advice, support, a safe space and an inspiring place, watched over by knowledgeable, trained professionals who deeply care about our community and how the youth are raised.
