This year

Welcome to International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD)!

In 2020, coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted our ability to hold public events and awards ceremonies, therefore some changes are being made to the way we are celebrating IDPwD. This year, we will promote and acknowledge the achievements and contributions of people with disability through a digital, online campaign. This will run from the IDPwD website and social media channels.

We encourage you to share our messages of inclusion and diversity and your own messages of ‘seeing the ability in disability’ through your online and social media channels – #disablestereotypes. If you are keen to host or attend an event for IDPwD, we recommend you do so while aligning with relevant state/territory restrictions. Alternatively, we would suggest you consider celebrating the 4.4 million Australians living with disability through a digital or online activity.
