International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations (UN) observed day celebrated on 3 December each year. It is a day to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of people with disability and promote awareness, understanding and acceptance in our community.

Around one in six people, or 4.4 million Australians, have disability. Not all disability is the same, and some disabilities are invisible. By joining the conversation and listening to the stories and lived experiences of people with disability, we can challenge our own perceptions about disability and help make positive changes in the community. Join the conversation this #IDPwD to help raise awareness, challenge perceptions and break down barriers. Let’s all take action this December, and all year round, to make our society more inclusive for people with disability.
