10am till 5pm, Monday to Friday

The drop-in centre is sometimes closed during these hours if staff have to leave the building. If you're making a special trip, call us first on (09) 376 4155 to make sure we'll be open.

The Rainbow Youth drop-in centre is smoke, alcohol and drug-free. It's for queer youth, their friends and whanau, and anyone else interested in learning more about the queer community.

What we mean when we say queer

A reclaimed word that represents sexuality and gender diversity. We use it to encompass lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, fa'afafine, and takataapui identities, as well as everyone in between and not sure. This word is used by many people, but it is also appreciated that it is not the preferred term for everybody.
