International Day of People with a Disability

International Day People with Disability Header


International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) is a universally recognised day of acceptance, understanding and awareness.

Forbes Shire Council, in partnership with local service providers and schools, participates annually in the event to celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disabilities in our community. Forbes Shire Council is committed to recognising this important day on the calendar and encouraging everyone to get involved in the day. In previous years, Forbes celebrated International Day of People with Disability with a Pool Party at the Forbes Olympic Pool. The day was a great success, with participants enjoying a free BBQ and cake, taking part in sensory painting and chair yoga, participating in a performance by Mainly Music and some people even braved the unseasonably cold weather for a swim in the pool!

The date has been set for this years event, Thursday 1st December 2022. More details will be posted on our events page.
