How will your school celebrate International Day of People with Disability? Each year, throughout November and December, NSW celebrates the Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign. Different organisations host events and the campaign publishes Made You Look, a great magazine about all things disability!
International Day of People with Disability will be on Tuesday 3rd December. You might like to discuss it with your teachers or check out some of the events in your local area.
You might not have considered that there is work for Events Managers or Campaign Managers in the disability and community care sector. The team at Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) who manage Don’t DIS my ABILITY include Events Managers, Graphic Designers, IT Professionals and Social Media specialists, all involved in creating a statewide awareness campaign. If politics is more your thing, consider the team who are lobbying for the NDIS, with the highly successful Every Australian Counts campaign.
If you are interested in frontline support work, you may end up doing a little Events Management anyway. Read about Ryan on the carecareers blog, who loves organising International Day of People with Disability events at The Disability Trust, where he is a Manager of Sport and Recreation Services. Or read about Jacqui, who organised an art exhibition and concert as part of her role at Northwest Disability Services.
Make sure you get involved and celebrate International Day of People with Disability this year. We will be!
