Sunday 3 December marks the International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). A United Nations sanctioned day, IDPwD recognises the journey for people with disability, their contributions and the impact community can have when inclusivity is a major priority.

The theme for 2017 IDPwD is 'Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all'. The overarching principle of this theme is to leave no one behind and empower people with disability to be active contributors to society. It's based on transformative changes envisaged in the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development [PDF 6.4 MB].

In Australia, the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 commits all governments to a nationwide approach aimed at improving the lives of people with disability, their families and carers. The strategy’s ten-year national framework for reform focuses on better inclusion for people with disability and seeks to create a society that enables people with disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens.

CFA's Disability Action Plan seeks to identify and inform improvements to ensure access and inclusion so that people with disability are treated equitably and can actively contribute to CFA.
