Face-to-face EVENTS

We’ve got everything from bowling and mini-golf to movie nights and catch-ups at the hub offices. Peer events give you an opportunity to connect with others going through similar stuff, help reduce isolation, and provide a break from cancer. Check out Canteen Connect to see what cancer support community events are happening near you. Live outside of our Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch hub cities? Our Youth Workers hold quarterly face-to-face events in different regions around the country, but if you don’t want to wait, join our wide range of fun online events through Canteen Connect.

We run regular online events to connect rangatahi from across Aotearoa. Sometimes it’s tricky to get to a face-to-face event, or you may just want to join an event and socialise from the comfort of your couch with things like baking, book clubs, gaming nights, and crafting sessions.
