Our Charity - International Day of People With Disabilities (IDPWD)
All funds raised go to the UN affiliated charity International Day of People With Disabilities About 1 billion people around the world live with a disability – that’s roughly 15 per cent of our global population.
On December 3 each year we celebrate International Day of People with Disabilities. In 1981 the United Nations proclaimed this as a recognised day for the celebration of the achievements of people living with disabilities across the world. It is also a day upon which we promote awareness of the challenges faced by over 1 billion people living with disabilities, and the role communities and societies play in accelerating the eradication of barriers to social inclusion, equity, participation and citizenship.
IDPWD - Not Just a Day
International Day of People with Disabilities is not owned by the UN – it is owned by everyone: people, organisations, agencies, charities, places of learning – all of whom have a vital role to play in identifying and addressing discrimination, marginalization, exclusion and inaccessibility that many people living with disabilities face.
International Day of People with Disabilities is one day on the international calendar, yet it symbolizes the actions we should take every day, in order to create diverse and accepting communities.
Further, we support people with a disability on a daily basis through our suite of NDIS services such as support coordination, mainstream employment opportunities, transport and domestic assistance packages.
