International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations observed day held on 3 December each year.

In Australia, IDPwD is a joint effort between government, schools, organisations, community groups, businesses and individuals.

The Australian Government through the Department of Social Services funds a national program and this website to help promote and raise awareness of this day.

The IDPwD program aligns with Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-31 and aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability.
