Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

And at this time of year its really important to look out for other friends and family.

We are aware that a lot has been going on for our young people in Dunedin.  Many people - young and old - struggle over the holiday period.  So please take time to notice your friends and offer support if it’s needed.  Services are often closed down during this time and people who might normally be about for you may be on holiday or unavailable.  

So here are a few numbers you can use if you or someone you know needs support over the next two weeks, until everyone is back at work in the New Year.

Youthline - 0800376633 - or talk@youthline.co.nz

Mirror HQ - 479-2970

Youth Speciality Service - 474-5601

for emergencies - EPS  on 0800467846 - then press 2 for Otago

or Police on 111
