International Day of People with a Disability
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is an opportunity for the community to make positive changes to the lives of 4 million Australians.
3 December is International Day of People with Disability, a United Nations sanctioned day that celebrates progress in breaking down barriers, opening doors, and realising an inclusive society for all.
Disability organisations, businesses, governments and the community come together at events across the country to mark the occasion and celebrate the achievements of people with disability.
The National Disability Awards recognise outstanding work of individuals and organisations that improve the lives of people with disability.

Play For Our Kids
In every person a child is hidden who wants to play.
Lifestart Play for Kids aims to raise awareness in our community about the value and importance of play in all our lives.
In late August the Minister for Disability the Hon. John Ajaka MLC launched the 7th annual Play for our Kids project in front of over 400 children and families at Luna Park, Just For Fun… and play.
Play for Kids provides an opportunity to:
- Play a game and raise money for Lifestart
- Play with family, friends or in your workplace
- When: 15 August to 31 December 2016
- How to Play for Kids: For a Step by Step guide please go to www.lifestart.org.au/fundraising-events/play-for-kids
Play for Kids enables us to get a strong message out that play is one of the best ways for all children to learn and develop, especially children with disability or delay. Play is the bridge for children to be included in our community.
Play for Kids today.
