Community, Youth and Child Services
Our Community, Youth and Child Services deliver a range of programs to meet the needs of communities, young people and families in the Canterbury Region. Our services are delivered at St John of God Waipuna, a specialist community and youth agency in Christchurch.
Health and Wellbeing
Our services include talking therapy for young people with mental health, alcohol and drug issues, as well as eating awareness services.
Our Community Development program at Waipuna supports vulnerable young people to achieve growth and development.
Young Parents Development
We support young mums and dads to help them make positive parenting choices.
Early Childhood Education
Little Owls Preschool offers early-childhood education with high teacher to child ratios in both a nursery and pre-school setting. Centrally located for families in Avonside, and Wainoni, Linwood, Bexley, Dallington and Phillipstown, we engage all children in a range of learning experiences.
St John of God Hauora Trust's Child Protection Policy helps ensure the safety and protection of children. The policy provides guidelines for our caregivers to ensure correct and effective processes are in place when there are concerns for the safety or wellbeing of children.
