Mar 5 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Recruitment and Individualised Funding

Western Community Centre |  46 Hyde Avenue, Hamilton | March 5 (9.30am – 3.30pm)
Do you have a personal budget or Individualised Funding? Are you thinking about Individualised Funding for the future? When you have your own Individual budget you can either ‘buy people’ or things. Attracting, recruiting, inducting, training and supervising the right person, or people into your life is what this workshop is all about.
  • You will hear from others who have first-hand experience at recruiting and managing staff
  • You will learn how to structure your recruitment processes for maximum benefit
  • You will hear about some of the core legislative and employment law principles you’ll need to follow
  • You will learn about supervising and supporting your staff, and
  • You will have time to interact and engage around your particular recruitment challenges/successes.

 

This workshop has been designed for Individualised Budget holders and/or their agents. It will provide you with real-time examples of employment strategies and connect you with others who are on the same waka.

This material is being delivered in three physical locations as a one-day workshop and as three online zoom sessions with multiple options.

SibShop with Bowling – (Waikato)
Mar 27 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Come bowling with us! A fun-filled day for Kiwi kids and teens who have a disabled brother or sister, and a chance to connect with other kids who just ‘get it’.

Our popular SibShops offer the opportunity for children and youth with a disabled brother or sister to have a day where the focus and attention is just on them.

As well as having a blast bowling, these siblings will get the chance to sit down together and talk about what it’s like having a disabled sibling, in a safe environment with others who know just where they are coming from. They will also get the chance to discuss practical tips and strategies to help them thrive in their own unique family and whānau environment.

Our SibShops are incredibly popular so get in quick! This SibShop is made possible thanks to funding from the Glenice & John Gallagher Foundation.

When: 10am—4.30pm
