Frequently asked questions

I can’t make a specific event or training. Is there a chance it will be repeated?

If we feel the demand is high enough, we’ll consider repeating the training/event.

Are training / events / online courses only for those people working in specific services / organisations?

Our training / events / online courses are open to anyone working with rangatahi | young people who are experiencing mental health or addiction issues. If there is a restriction on who can attend, this will be made clear on the information we provide.

Is there a cost to attending an event / training or to do an online course?

Whāraurau is funded by the  Government to provide training, however as we have limited funds it is important to let us know if you aren't able to attend. This also allows us to offer your place to someone else. Note: we do not cover the cost of travel or accommodation.

I haven’t received a confirmation email or a Zoom link to the training / event.

Please email outlining the issue you’re having, and we’ll get back to you.

How is Whāraurau funded?
