International Day of Persons with Disabilities

3 December, 2021

International Day of People with Disability is to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions. Each year the UN announces a theme to provide an overarching focus on how society can strive for inclusivity through the removal of physical, technological and attitudinal barriers for people with disability. In Australia, the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 committed all governments to a nationwide reform of inclusion for people with disability and for people with disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens. In December 2020, Disability Ministers from across Australia issued a statement to inform their continued commitment to this Strategy and to finalise the new National Disability Strategy in 2021.
