What is the International Day of People with Disability?

The International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations observed day celebrated throughout the world each year on 3 December. The day aims to increase public awareness, understanding and recognition of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.

What is this year's IDPwD theme?

This year’s theme for Western Australia is 'My Life, Our Community', which acknowledges that everyone has the right to make decisions for their life. The theme also highlights the value and importance of everyone having the opportunity to be involved and play an active role within their community.

We all have a role to play in creating an inclusive community. Disability is not a barrier to living full, independent lives where people can reach their full potential. Everyone should be able to participate fully, safely and free from prejudice in everyday life.

What is the Rotary Club of Metropolitan WA?

The Rotary Club of Metropolitan WA is a provisional Rotary club. We are primarily comprised of parents who love organising kid-friendly activities and fundraising events for various causes. This event is run auspiced by the Rotary Club of Osborne Park.

Who can attend this event?

Anyone! People of any age or ability can attend! This is an inclusive event to help us all increase our understanding and awareness of disability.

Please ensure children are supervised by carers at all times.

How else can I get involved with IDPwD?

There are many ways you can celebrate IDPwD and promote further awareness, acknowledgement,  participation and inclusion of people with disability. Encourage your friends, family, social or sports clubs to hold an event to highlight and celebrate IDPwD.

  • Host a morning or afternoon tea, or ‘snacks and facts’ information session to raise awareness.
  • Watch one of the below videos or host a ‘watch party’ that showcases stories that are both educational and inspiring.
    • The Lives we Lead - this project aims to influence the community to better understand the contributions that people with disability are making economically, socially, culturally and politically. It features stories of people with disability living independently and contributing to their community.
    • Different Lens - this initiative provides a fascinating insight into what life is like for 13 Western Australians living with disability and looks to break down stereotypes and stigmas related to Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease, acquired brain injuries, intellectual disabilities, spinal cord injuries and autism. Here are two of the 13 stories:
    • Healthy Food for All Abilities - Foodbank WA runs the ‘Healthy Food for All Abilities’ initiative, funded by the Department of Communities. It is a free healthy eating and cooking program with classes tailored to suit people with disability and their support workers. Participants build their nutritional knowledge over four weekly sessions led by university qualified nutritionists.
    • You Can’t Ask That
      You Can’t Ask That is an ABC series of episodes that asks some challenging questions to uncover the truth behind what it's like for marginalised and misunderstood Australians. Registration is required but free to watch:
