Disability Awareness Day
Sunday 15th July 2018
During the past 27 years we have received hundreds of contacts from individuals and organisations from across the world interested in organising a Disability Awareness Event.
This includes small events such as having a guest speaker talk to a group about disability awareness, small to medium sized disability sports, rights or information events through to full scaled exhibitions similar to ours. 2014 saw an even greater level of world-wide interest in International Disability Awareness. This included interest in the UK from the BBC and ITV television, regional and national radio stations, The Guardian newspaper and all of the leading disability press. Internationally reference to Disability Awareness Day could be found on the websites of organisations in India, Cameroon, Mexico, and America. This prompted us to set up this section of our website to collect and share activity that individuals and organisations are planning for the International Day of Disability Awareness .
Tell us what you or your organisation is doing for the International Day of Disability Awareness on the 15th July 2018 and we will tell everyone about it on this page.
