International Day for people with Disabilities


Today we are celebrating the International Day of People with Disabilities  to  raise awareness of disabilities,  break down barriers,  and to stimulate discussion. Starting the conversation is the first step towards greater inclusivity. 

Students can  support the event by attending the workshops, talks and ‘taster’ sessions, and by cascading information more widely.
