Integrated Wrap-Around Service for Rangatahi/Youth between 16-24 years of age.

This programme brings together a range of services customised for Rangatahi/Youth under one roof. Rangatahi can access health professionals that specialise in youth services, helping young people to grow healthily.

We are able to take referrals for young people aged under 16 years old on a case-by-case basis. Here at the Hub, we work with young people to create their own customised plans, helping them progress their education, training, or employment outcomes. Supporting rangatahi is our number one goal at the Hub, so our youth programme is free for all enrolled rangatahi/youth.

Get enrolled today or reach out if you have any questions. One of our friendly support workers will happily help you.


How the Rangatahi Hub Works:

Phase One: Make Contact

The first step to enrolling in our youth programme is to get in touch with us! You can visit us at 88 King St, Kopeopeo, Whakatane and ask about the next steps. Otherwise, give us an email at rangatahihub@tpoom.co.nz or reachour on facebook.

Phase 2—The Plan

For every rangatahi/youth, a customised individual plan is designed from a whānau ora approach to achieving independence.

An individual plan could take weeks, months or even a year, depending on what the rangatahi/youth wants to overcome or achieve.

Phase 3—Building Blocks

Each plan is made up of a combination of different building blocks, each included to help youth development. The goal is for the rangatahi to achieve independence in their own way.
