A community thrives when locals connect and collaborate to realise the potential of their place. Inspiring Communities are partnering with Volunteer Nelson to deliver this workshop. It is facilitated by Kindra Douglas. It will be held on the 27th October at the Habitat Hub in Tāhunanui, 9.30am - 4pm.
MSD has been engaging with the Disability sector over the last month or so on how best to use the $5m Care in the Community Disability Welfare Fund (the Fund) .
MSD has worked in close cooperation and collaboration with the disability sector and other government agencies to determine the best options for the use of this funding.
Four key needs have been identified through this engagement and meeting one or more of these needs is the basic criteria for the distribution of funds from either of two new fund types. These needs are:
- Connecting to social networks, communities, and identities
- Support for the whānau of a disabled person
- Precautions to prevent exposure to COVID-19, and
- Connecting with support networks
