Community organisations who are members of Living Wage and Te Ohu Whakawhanaunga are encouraged to send leaders and change makers to be part of this training.
Spaces are limited and priority will be given to community leaders who have already been involved with our one day/two day Living Wage and Te Ohu Whakawhanaunga training.
For organisations and individuals that do not have membership with Living Wage or Te Ohu Whakawhanaunga, please contact our Community Organisers if you are interested in this training. We will assess on a case-by-case basis if there will be spaces available.
There is also a Wellington-based training available run through the Living Wage network in Wellington.
