Celebrate Disability Action Week

Disability Action Week is held annually in September 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.

Disability Action Week 2017

Disability Action Week 2017 will be held from Sunday 10 to Saturday 16 September.

This year’s theme - Everybody has a role to play - encourages everyday Queenslanders to make small changes to create a more welcoming state for people with disability.

Disability Action Week is a key part of the Everybody has a role to play awareness campaign, which aims to help create opportunities for all through sharing stories of Queenslanders with disability and providing tips for individuals and organisations on how they can be more inclusive.

Hosting an event during Disability Action Week is a great way to empower people with disability, raise awareness of disability issues and improve access and inclusion.

Register your event and we'll add it to the Disability Action Week events calendar.

Theme your event and promote Disability Action Week with downloadable and printable resources such as posters, an invitation and a certificate.

You can also share your story by visiting the website.

Stay informed by following us on Twitter and Facebook. Find the Disability Action Week Facebook filter and apply it to your profile picture to show your support of the week.

Working towards an inclusive community is more important than ever, especially with Queensland transitioning to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Disability Action Week offers something for everyone.

Everyone has a role to play—All Abilities Queensland
