Take 10 logo

Take 10 Queenstown is a late-night “safe zone” for vulnerable youth.

For those who may need a break from drinking, need help, or just want a break, we provide a safe place to “take 10”. They can hang out, have some water, charge their phone to stay in touch with friends and family, get medical help, refuge, and advice from our fully trained team leaders and volunteers.

We aim to:

  • reduce harm from alcohol and drugs
  • reduce demands on emergency services and local hosts

We keep our “safe zone” welcoming and non-judgmental by:

  • always using positive language
  • greeting visitors with a smile, water, and lollies
  • providing a private space for those who need more attention

What makes Take 10 different?

  • Preventative – we catch people before they become victims by stopping them from becoming isolated, and helping to reconnect people.
  • Approach-able – people are often more willing to come to us than the police or emergency services
  • Safe – we give people a place to go where they can sober up, rather than putting themselves at risk

We’re looking for volunteers to come out on Friday and Saturday nights, hand out water, talk to people, and make the Take 10 area an inviting place to be. Interested? Click below, fill in your details and we’ll get back to you!

We are also always on the lookout for medics and registered youth workers to join us and help make a difference. If you’re qualified and interested, please contact us.
