The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) marked International Day for Disabled People, 3 December 2016, by revealing brand new engagement resources. Building on the success of the inclusive communications animation, EFDS has released its next film for engaging disabled people. Complementing the animation is a collection of free fact sheets that enable organisations to plan, target and deliver activities more effectively. The national charity hopes these resources will lead to more successful engagement ideas for disabled people to be and stay active for life.
Since 1992, people from across the globe have celebrated the United Nation’s International Day for Disabled People, 3 December. The annual celebration adopts a theme every year. This year’s theme is “Achieving 17 Goals for the Future We Want”.
The United Nations created The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), as it is also known, in 1992. It aims to promote awareness and gain support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of disabled people in society. The Day raises awareness about disability issues and draws attention to the benefits of an inclusive and accessible society for all.
