About

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on 3 December each year.

IDPwD is a United Nations sanctioned day that is celebrated internationally. The Australian Government has been supporting IDPwD since 1996. IDPWD aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.

Information on how individuals and organisations can get involved in the day and how to break down barriers (both structural and attitudinal) for people with disability can be found on this website.
