We're excited to announce that as of 1 July 2020, Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui will be called Te Pou. We have a fresh new look and a new logo that you will begin to see more often. Our website will be rebuilt over the coming months, to be more focused on ease of access to our resources and knowledge. Read more here.
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.
