International Day of People with Disability

Categories:

On 3 December every year International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is celebrated worldwide recognising the achievements and contributions of people with disability.

IDPwD brings together people with disability and the general community and aims to:

  • showcase the skills, abilities, contributions and achievements of people with disability
  • promote a positive image of people with disability
  • involve people with disability and the broader community in activities to celebrate and raise awareness of IDPwD.

Equal Opportunity Commissioner Linda Matthews stated, "South Australia has good reason to celebrate this Day because the new legislation extends the disability coverage of the Act to all types of disability.  So South Australians, no matter what type of disability they may have, can now take action in their local Equal Opportunity Commission".
