"Enough is Enough our disabled kids deserve equal rights” - help Conductive Education Taranaki.

Conductive Education Taranaki is encountering funding challenges, with repeated rejection from the Ministry of Health to help fund our "Kids with Disabilities" service - citing no funds available, the system is in review and no new contracts or pathways are available - leaving us in a tough spot. With the added pressures from Covid, our ability to apply for appropriate funding has decreased, let alone the ability to stage significant fundraising events to help support ourselves. Our current annual costs are approx $250,000 to deliver disability intervention to Taranaki kids with disabilities, through access to consistent weekly Conductive Education sessions supported by their caregivers or aides. We charge a nominal fee, as we believe this support should be accessible to all families.

We foster an empowering and positive environment to the kids and their whanau, and for those existing in a tough space -disability support. We ultimately desire to be self sustainable through social enterprise. Existing CE providers in NZ have held Ministry of Health contracts for over 25 years, with no engagement at govt level for us it is tough.
