Disability

Te Pou is a hub of workforce and leadership development for disabled people, whānau and the disability workforce.

We believe in social justice, inclusion and building healthy communities.

We collaborate with disabled people, whānau and the workforce to invest in skill and leadership development and to create resources that build the values, knowledge and skills we all need to uphold the rights of disabled people in accordance with:

You can find a sample of our resources below under Resources.

Te Pou also manages grant funding for disabled people, whānau and the workforce, to build skills, networks and knowledge that support self-determination, partnership, and citizenship. 

We've made some changes to the way grants are administered. Go to Disability workforce grants for information about the following grants:

  • training grants 
  • workforce development grants
  • consumer leadership development grants (disabled people and whānau).
