Youthline Wellington Annual Street Appeal

Published: Tue 21 May 2019 09:18 AM
The Annual Street Appeal Collection is one of Youthline Wellington’s biggest events of the year. It is essential for promoting our services to young people and raising much needed funds to keep the organisation running.
This allows us to continue to provide free, confidential, non-judgemental telephone, text, email and webchat counselling. We also provide an information/referral service to young people in the Wellington and Greater Wellington areas, as well as providing education services, training young people to volunteer at Youthline and running a very successful youth development programme for young people.
Many young people find it helpful to talk to us when they are facing highly emotional situations and feel that they are in crisis. Common issues we are contacted about are depression, anxiety, self-injury, and support for friends, family and partners.
As part of Youth Week 2019, which runs from 18 - 26 May, we have various youth and community organisations, businesses, sponsors, and colleges, helping our organisation collect on Thursday 23 May 2019.
Local Musicians, Daisy van Wel and Abbey Noelle will be adding fun to our stall on Cuba Mall throughout the day of the street appeal. Everyone should come along and support our vital service!

This year, Youthline Wellington will also be promoting our ‘Hauora’ Hoodies for $60 (perfect for Winter) designed by Talisker Scott Hunter, and kindly printed by Thomas at Artisan prints.
