Safe spaces for young people

The Stand By Me Anti-bullying project was initiated by Barnardos and North Shore Social and Community Services. It now has more sites on the North Shore where young people can access help and support: Takapuna Library (corner Gibbons Rd & the Strand), Orewa Library (Moana Ave) and Glenfield Pool and Leisure Centre (Bentley Ave).

Two Z Service stations have also trained staff, with plans to extend the service: Lakeside (Taharoto Rd, Takapuna) and East Coast Rd in Northcross.
