Kia Noho Rangatira Ai Tātou Education Programme Workshop - Dunedin

Kia Noho Rangatira Ai Tātou is a unique education programme that puts the human rights of disabled people and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) into a New Zealand context.

It is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health, and free to those with a Disability Support Service contract. If you do not have a contract, please contact Te Pou and we will discuss our cost recovery pricing. Please do enquire as we don’t want cost to be a barrier to participation.

Delivered over two days, the programme provides practical application of the UNCRPD that can be used by disabled people, whānau and disability support providers to ensure disabled people’s human rights are upheld in everyday life and practice.

Attendance on both days is required.

Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 October - arrive 9am for 9.30am start with a 4.30pm finish.
