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 space in Stoke - Whanake Youth, Nelson offers a warm, safe and friendly space for local youth aged 13-25 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.
