Ātea is a training programme led by disabled people that aims to increase participants' awareness of attitudes towards disabled people, and how to reduce barriers so that everyone can participate fully in society.

When: 16 May, 9.30am – 3.30pm
Where: Online
Cost: Free for Disability Support Services who hold a contract with Whaikaha or offered on a cost recovery basis.
Registration: online at Ātea - Disability 101

Developed by the Te Pou Disability Workforce Development Team, the content is relevant to anyone who interacts with disabled people in their work or personal life.

The workshops help participants be aware of their own attitudes towards disabled people, what contributes to ableism and ways that people can minimise ableism. The goal is for non-disabled people to actively include disabled people wherever they might be.
