Real Bay of Plenty

Real Bay of Plenty runs a youth respite service for young people aged between 12–18 years. A young person experiencing a difficult time, such as suffering from anxiety or depression, can be referred to our service to stay.

A stay gives them a break in a caring environment where they will be supported by our team of youth workers to get back on track to feeling well. During a stay, our supportive and understanding team help young people develop problem solving and life skills and build resilience.

We believe with the right tools and support, every young person can realise their potential and feel more positive about their futures.
