International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is aimed at increasing awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability, as well as celebrating their achievements and contributions.

Instead of just celebrating IDPwD on Friday 3 December, the City of Stonnington proudly showcased a variety of inclusive, accessible and free activities for our whole community from 1 to 8 December.

Some of the activity highlights included a choice of world music inspired Zumba options (seated, online & face-to-face), Victorian Blind Cricket Association defeating Prahran Cricket Club in an exhibition match at Righetti Oval on the eve of the Blind Cricket Season, meeting new people and exploring new areas with the Summer Walk and Talk Buddies, learning how to make your NDIS program work for your needs via our webinar, as well as experiencing inclusive format of AFL and Wheelchair Rugby.

If you’d like to learn more about the available inclusive activity options with the City of Stonnington, contact us via email activestonnington@stonnington.vic.gov.au and we’ll point you in the right direction.
