Pacific People Support funding service specification 2018

The purpose of the Pacific People Support fund is to enhance the likelihood of the Pacific workforce successfully completing HWNZ funded training programmes by providing Pacific Peoples support that is culturally competent and technically relevant to the training programme.

This fund provides access to mentoring, cultural supervision, and cultural development activities that enhance the personal, cultural and professional self.

Pacific people who are users of health services benefit from Pacific health staff who complete their programme of study, by having access to a workforce that safely meets their cultural needs. The funding provides access to mentoring, cultural supervision, and cultural development activities that enhance the personal, cultural, and professional self.

The Pacific People Support funding incorporates three key elements of wraparound support:

  • Mentoring
  • Cultural supervision
  • Cultural development activities (activities that build or strengthen cultural identity).
