Real Counties Manukau

Real Counties Manukau operates a short stay respite service for young people experiencing difficult times in their lives. It is available on an as-needed basis for 14-22 year olds. 

In a welcoming environment, our team supports young people to get back on track – by supporting them to develop social connections, grow confidence and resilience, and strengthen their connections with family and whanau – so they can live their dreams and thrive in their communities. 

How to get Real

Any young person who lives in the Counties Manukau region may be able to access Real services through the Counties Manukau DHB Whirinaki health service – available on 09 265 4000. 

Please contact our Real team if you have any questions, are concerned about a young family member or friend, or have someone close to you staying with us who you'd like to contact.
