Twenty One

It's an important milestone. It's a reason to both reflect and project. And even more importantly, it's a reason to celebrate! This year marks the 21st anniversary of International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) and to help mark this milestone we want to share the stories of other people who are celebrating their 21st birthdays this year.

The International Day of People with Disability team is seeking people with disabilities from across all parts of Australia who turn 21 in 2013 to be part of a national project to showcase their achievements and forecast their future hopes and dreams.

We want individuals from around Australia to be part of the national story.

If you are, or know someone with a disability who has achieved success in life, study or work which has allowed them to pursue dreams and goals, why not be part of a national story to mark the 21st celebrations of International Day of People with Disability.

We hope to identify 21 people from across Australia. We hope to tell 21 stories and we know we have 21 reasons to celebrate this milestone together.

Please check out the Twenty One page on the website, email [email protected] or contact or phone 1800 672 682.
