The Wheelhouse has an agreed relationship with the TSB Community Trust for subsidised community training for not-for-profit organisations. This subsidy operates at two levels:
Applying for a subsidy:
Applications need to be submitted at least three weeks before the training event to ensure they can be processed in time. The Wheelhouse will evaluate each subsidy request and may decline some requests if they do not align with current policies and priorities. Each request will be assessed on its own merits.
Subsidy for training programmes:
The Wheelhouse oversees an annual training programme. Subsidies are applied to training that aligns with the aims of The Wheelhouse. These are promoted on the training calendar.
Individual attendee subsidy:
Staff, board members or volunteers of not-for-profit organisations operating wholly or significantly within the Taranaki region may be eligible for a subsidy towards the cost of training not already covered by a subsidy. Examples may include national or regionally significant training outside of the region.
