Our sponsorships

The Australian Government, through the Department of Social Services, sponsors a small number of national awards, events and activities across Australia. The aim of our sponsorships is to:

  • raise awareness of International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) across Australia, and
  • promote awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability among mainstream audiences.

We do not currently provide funding or sponsorship opportunities for local IDPwD events.

If you manage a national award, event or activity, please visit the Department of Social Services sponsorship page for information about how to submit a sponsorship proposal.

Our sponsorships in 2024 are listed below.

ABC Storyteller Scholarship and Content Commissioning Fund

IDPwD is partnering with the ABC to showcase the creative work of emerging content makers with disability. The partnership includes professional employment opportunities for people with disability as well as stories by, and about, people with disability across ABC websites, radio, social media, TV, and iView.
