Help us build Youth Hub Christchurch!
Youth Hub Christchurch aims to be a turning point in the lives of young people aged 10-25. The Hub will be the first of its kind in New Zealand and will be based in the heart of central Christchurch.
It will house a collaboration of organisations under one roof delivering wrap-around services including mental health, medical, educational, employment and training, recreation, creativity and social entrepreneurship.
A key feature of the Youth Hub is its supported housing facilities, which will provide accommodation for up to 40 young people aged 16-23.
Anglican Care has purchased an acre of land on Salisbury Street to build the Youth Hub and the Government has granted us $12.5 million for construction. It's a great start but it's only half of what we need.
To turn this dream into a reality for Christchurch's young people we also need your help.

Summer update 10 February 2022
I’m pleased to report that we are making great progress with the detailed design phase for the Youth Hub buildings nearly finished. We are also looking forward to starting site preparations in autumn to make way for construction work.
As we venture deeper into 2022 our focus is now turning to ramping up our fundraising efforts to raise the additional $12.5 million we need to build Youth Hub Christchurch.
With Covid continuing to cause widespread uncertainty and disruptions and construction costs and inflation increasing by the day, the need to raise the additional funds and get building underway as soon as possible is more critical than ever.
To assist us, I’m pleased to share with you our new fundraising videos put together by the very talented John Sellwood from Telling Lives. I also want to thank our Ambassador New Zealand netballer Jane Watson and our youth volunteers for starring in the videos.
Please help us by sharing these videos through your networks or donating what you are able to. Every dollar gets us one step closer to making this dream for Christchurch’s young people a reality.
