Community Partnership Funding – International Day of People with Disability 2018

Included on this page

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD)

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD)is a United Nations sanctioned day held each year on 3 December. It is a day that aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability. Thousands of registered events have been held across the country since the inception of International Day of People with Disability in 1992.  By celebrating this day and talking about disability, you will help to break down barriers for the 4.3 million Australians living with disability and contribute to positive change in your community.

Get Involved

The best way to celebrate is to hold an activity or event for your community. An International Day of People with Disability event should involve and celebrate people with disability and be held on or around 3 December 2018. This could be a guest speaker, morning tea, art exhibition, concert or sausage sizzle to mark the day – or any other ideas you have to celebrate! Other ideas for activities or events, as well as resources such as a Event Planning Kit and promotional materials, are available on the International Day of People with Disability website: https://www.idpwd.com.au/events/
