Disability History Month

Disability History Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the challenges of those within our communities who have seen or unseen disabilities or are caring for those with disabilities.

This year’s theme is “Disability, Health and Wellbeing” - an opportunity to ask questions, learn more and take action to become an active ally and show support.

This year the dates are: Wednesday 16 November 2022 to Friday 16 December 2022.
