Kapiti Youth Support
Kapiti Youth Support (KYS) is a free confidential health and support service for anyone aged 10 - 24 living in Kapiti.
KYS is one of Kapiti Rotary's primary causes. KYS has become an integral part of the Kapiti community and somewhat of an icon for youth services throughout New Zealand. Their service is available for all health concerns and issues whether physical or emotional. Whether youths need a chat over a cuppa, advice, support or treatment, they're approachable, friendly and easy to talk with. All doctors, nurses, mentors, social workers and counsellors are fully trained and offer professional services which are FREE of charge!
KYS won both Team of the Year and the Supreme award at the Capital & Coast District Health Board Quality Improvement and Innovation Awards 2013 .
But its not easy-they need funding and governance. Kapiti Rotary are proud to support and promote KYS.
