Palmerston North Kia Noho Rangatira Ai Tātou

28 October 2020 - 10:00am - 29 October 2020 - 4:00pm

Kia Noho Rangatira Ai Tātou is a unique education programme that puts the human rights of disabled people and the 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 payment 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 at both days is required. 

The comprehensive content includes:  

Section 1 Human Rights

Section 3 The Human Rights system
