International Day of People with Disability
Celebrate International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) with us on 3 December.
IDPwD aims to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability. It’s a day to celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.
This year’s theme for International Day of People with Disability is about creating conversations to challenge common perceptions of disability and help create a more inclusive Australia.
We can work together to see all abilities and create an inclusive Australia.
Ahead of the day, check out our website where you can find a poster to display at home, your workplace or within your community.
More information is available on the official IDPwD website including an event calendar and event planning kit.
