Te Pou is a hub of workforce and leadership development for disabled people, whānau and the disability workforce.
Let's get real: Disability is a framework that describes the essential attitudes, values, skills and knowledge needed by anyone working alongside disabled people and whānau, to assist in people attaining their aspirations.
Disabled people often have poorer health compared to non-disabled people.

Disabled people make great employees, particularly in disability support services.
