Te Pou o Te Whakaaro Nui reached some wonderful milestones in 2014. More individuals from the disability workforce - 6,618 – accessed some form of DWD grant funding. This represents a 32 per cent increase compared to 2013 and is the largest number of grants to be allocated in a single year since Te Pou started managing this contract. In addition, 4,400 individual participants have since been funded through grants from 1 January to 30 June 2015; this is unprecedented over the term of our contract in the past five years.
