About the campaign

Celebrate Disability Action Week 2016

Mark your calendar! Disability Action Week 2016 will be held 11 to 17 September.

Disability Action Week is held in September each year, with the aim of empowering people with disability, raising awareness of disability issues, and improving access and inclusion throughout the wider community.

With 1 in 5 Queenslanders having a disability, and disability touching the lives of most Queenslanders in some way, the week is an important celebration.

To stay informed about this year's theme and events, keep an eye on this page or email us and we can add you to our mailing list.

In addition to a range of events, forums and activities some of Queensland’s disability advocates shared their thoughts on building inclusion and access in our community:

Sharon Rogers talks guide, hearing and assistance dogs etiquette

Brad Jardine talks about talking

Karni Liddell talks about challenging assumptions

Tim McCallum talks community access
