  1. Wednesday 3 December is the 22nd anniversary of International Day of People with Disability.
  2. Celebrated annually, International Day of People with Disability plays an important role in promoting the inclusion of people with disability in all aspects of Australian life and encourages support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
  3. It is also a day to celebrate the many contributions people with disability make in our community.
  4. In Tasmania there are multiple events being held right across the state to celebrate International Day of People with Disability, including sausage sizzles, family fun days and workshops.
  5. Event registrations for International Day of People with Disability are still open, and events can be registered up until the 3 December by visiting the International Day of People with Disability website, idpwd.com.au, or by calling 1800 400 385.
