Haere Mai!

Our team had an exceptionally busy past few months and to best support our community and young people it is important to ensure we are looking after our own personal wellbeing through these navigational challenges that presents itself with COVID. This is why we have temporarily reduced our operation days for The Hangout Youth Centre and some members of the team taking well deserved annual leave breaks to refresh.

But this hasn't taken our work away from supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our rangatahi - and that is why we were excited to announce a collaborative partnership with Highlands Motorsport Park (HMPL) and the Cromwell Kahui Ako group which will see five years of funding from HMPL to bring into our community a Social Worker in Schools. We are already excited to announce we have a wonderful person already taking the helm for this role and settling into our organisation and we cannot wait to introduce her to our community in the coming weeks.

HMPL Chief Executive Officer Josie Spillane mentioned in an article that "We wanted to ensure that every child gets the right tools from the beginning to set them up for life, and ensure that as parents and a community we have those tools to support them too" with CYT being 100% on board with this and that supporting families to access assistance, support networks and information about their rights and entitlements, with a particular focus on mental health and education would be key.

With that - we wish to thank everyone for there ongoing support and understanding whilst we all navigate the current COVID situation together and continue to be safe for each other, looking out for ourselves and knowing it is OK to ask for help and support.
