Disability Awareness Week and
International Day of People with Disability
The International Day of People with Disability is held annually on 3 December and is celebrated internationally. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and to celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability. The Shire celebrates Disability Awareness Week and International Day of People with Disability by either purchasing a piece of equipment to assist people with disability (or similar) or by providing an event.
