Disability Action Week moved to December
Disability Action Week will take place from December 5 to 11 this year, after the week was staged in September in previous years.
Moving the week to December to align with International Day of People with Disability would give organisations more time to plan Covid-safe events and activities, according to Minister for Disability Services Craig Crawford.
Mr Crawford said a top priority was creating a more inclusive state for the one in five Queenslanders living with disability.
“As a government we are committed to creating thriving communities, where people of all abilities can access and enjoy opportunities to engage in their communities,” Mr Crawford said.
“Disability Action Week provides the perfect opportunity to promote greater community awareness about people with disability and supports inclusive communities.”
