International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on 3 December each year.
IDPwD is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.
The Australian Government has been supporting IDPwD since 1996 and provides funds to promote and raise awareness of the day around Australia.
The National Disability Awards (the Awards) are also held each year as part of the International Day of People with Disability celebrations.
