EVOLVE YOUTH HEALTH SERVICE
Evolve is a youth service based in central Wellington. We offer free & confidential health and social services for young people aged 10-25. We offer a range of services, activities and events in one awesome location to make it as easy as possible for young people to get what they need.
At Evolve everything is free. We won’t judge you or patronise you. We’re really discreet which means we won’t tell other people your business and you don’t have to feel embarrassed about anything here.
Young people are actively involved in keeping it real at Evolve. We have young people as staff members and as volunteers on our Board.
Thousands of young people from all kinds of backgrounds, cultures and lifestyles have visited Evolve since we opened in 2004.
Evolve has a team of friendly, non-judgemental doctors and nurses (clinicians) who provide primary healthcare services to meet pretty much all your health needs including sexual health, mental health, general check-ups, treatment and referrals. Clinics are available at Evolve every weekday and also at some schools around Wellington.
Our counsellors come from a range of backgrounds and have different skills and interests to suit different people. You can get a referral from our nurse for up to 6 free counselling sessions if there is something you’d like to talk through or work on with support from a professional.
Counselling sessions are by appointment only.
We have social workers and youth workers who can help with things like finding a job or somewhere to live. They provide social work, group work, advocacy, information and advice.
Evolve’s youth team is a diverse group of young people who look after our reception space and lounge areas. They can help arrange appointments, provide peer support and supply information about services at Evolve and elsewhere. They also coordinate projects, events and activities that anyone can join in with. See our website for details of what’s on at Evolve.
Evolve is open every weekday from 10am. Check our website for closing times.
