A late-night “safe zone” on Courtenay Place for  youth, with free water, phone charging, medical help, refuge, and advice. We provide a safe space to “take 10” for those who may need a break form drinking, need help, or just want a break.

Awards

  • Winner of 2021 Regional Community Awards, Hutt City, Education, and Child/Youth Development
  • Winner of 2018 Wellington City Council’s Safety Award
