Whanake Youth

In April 2017, as a direct result of consulting with over 3000 young people in the Nelson Tasman Marlborough area and holding several community meetings, the Youth Health and Wellbeing Trust was formed.

In consultation with Te Piki Oranga, young people and the Board of Trustees the name Whanake (Youth) was chosen.

Whanake Youth offers a non-judgmental space for local rangatahi to nurture and develop their health and wellbeing. Supported by us, a team of friendly healthcare professionals, their lives experience positive change.
