Celebrate Abilities

On 3 December each year the world celebrates International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD), a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to promote disability awareness through various platforms within community. 

In Australia, the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 commits all governments to a nationwide approach aimed at improving the lives of people with disability, their families and carers. The Strategy’s ten-year national framework for reform focuses on better inclusion for people with disability and seeks to create a society that enables people with disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens.

In 2019 the City of Hobart is hosting two free community events to celebrate this important day. The events will encourage inclusion and diversity, activate the City and celebrate community achievements. Click on the tabs below to find out more.
