3 December 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the International Day of People with Disability. This is an important day on the international calendar because it recognises that 15 percent of the world population live with disability[1].
 
This figure is higher in Australia, with almost 20 per cent of Australians have a disability (3.96 million people). This figure continues to increase as our population ages[2].
 
Ms Melissa Simpson, Acting CEO for Feros Care said this will be the first year Feros Care will celebrate this day as a Local Area Coordination (LAC) Partner of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
 
“With LAC services in Townsville, Mackay, ACT and South Australia, we work in collaboration with individuals and communities to enhance capacity to build inclusive communities.
 
“The rationale for this event is that art allows us to tap into our creativity and sense of playfulness, and cuts across all ages, cultures and abilities. Our Local Area Coordinators came up with this arty idea because they wanted a fun and all-inclusive way of celebrate this day with their community,” she said.
 
This year’s International Day of People with Disability theme is “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all”.
