With Auckland in Level 3 restrictions, and the rest of the country in Level 2, Te Pou offices are now closed. However, our team is working from home, and can be contacted by email or phone as usual - see our staff contact page for details. Stay safe everyone.
Te Pou o te Whakaaro nui (Te Pou) is a hub of workforce and leadership development for disabled people, whānau and the disability workforce.
Disability grants are available to enhance skills, develop leadership and strengthen the workforce of people providing supports to disabled people and their whānau.
Te Pou grants are made available by the Ministry of Health (MoH) who set the priority areas for funding.
People who access IF or people registered on the new disability support, System Transformation in Mid-Central are able to apply for Te Pou grants, without needing to go through an IF host provider. Giving disabled people flexibility and control over service support and delivery.
