For people living with a disability and The Disability Trust, International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD), December 3rd is an important day for awareness, understanding, recognition and acceptance.
This year, The Disability Trust focused on the theme ‘Remove the Barrier’ in support of Australian Paralympic Gold Medallist and Disability Advocate, Dylan Alcott OAM. The Dylan Alcott Foundation’s mission is to change the perception and eliminate the stigma about disability in mainstream employment.
“With over four million Australians having a form of disability and much higher rates of unemployment, we are proud to be supporting the Remove the Barrier campaign. Through our employment service Workskills we are calling on support from local businesses to provide more employment placement opportunities for people with disabilities”, said Chief Executive Officer of The Disability Trust, Margaret Bowen.
