Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPwD), a United Nations internationally observed day. Its an important opportunity to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
The Australian Government has been supporting IDPwD since 1996 and provides funds to promote and raise awareness of the day around Australia.
Information on how you can get involved in the day as an individual or organisation and how to break down barriers (both structural and attitudinal) for people with disability can be found on this website.
