Supporting people with a disability

Tomorrow, 3 December is International Day of People with a Disability – a time to recognise both the struggles and achievements of those who everyday have to face barriers and overcome issues that able-bodied people just don’t even consider.

The theme for International Day of People with a Disability 2016 is Achieving 17 goals for the future we want, which draws attention to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and how these goals can create a more inclusive and equitable world for persons with disabilities.

If you are living life with a disability, or know or care for someone who is, then you might be interested in checking out the calendar of events that are happening around the country.

Or perhaps you simply want to share your inspirational story with other members in the comments section below? We’d love to hear it.
