Check out our Facebook group!

Who goes to it?

Q4S usually has between 10 and 20 young people at each group ranging in age from 13 to 27.

What happens there?

Q4S creates a fun, supportive and informed environment for you to meet new people, make friends, ask questions, get advice, enjoy yummy food and drink, play board games, watch movies and generally just chill.

Keep a track of the Q4S Facebook for updates about what things are happening during the next meeting.

When and where we meet:

The group runs between 5pm and 7pm every 2nd Friday at ‘Phab’, 8 Auburn Street in Takapuna.

Coming along once doesn’t commit you to anything; some people come to every meeting and some come when they can – it doesn’t matter. You’re always welcome.


Q4S has facilitators that lead each meeting, run activities and make sure things are going smoothly. You can get in touch with them by emailing: [email protected]

Like all RY groups, GQ is totally drug, smoke and alcohol free.
