International Day of People with Disability
International Day of People with Disability is a United Nations designated day held annually on 3 December. The day aims to promote a better understanding of disability issues, with a focus on the rights of people with disabilities and the gains from integrating people with disabilities in every aspect of the political, social, economic and cultural life of their communities.
Access and Inclusion Awards
The Tweed Shire Access and Inclusion Awards were launched in 2013 to celebrate achievement and innovation in building an accessible community.
The awards recognise and acknowledge action by individuals, community groups, organisations and businesses that build and promote an accessible and inclusive Tweed community. They culminate in an awards ceremony in early December, to coincide with the International Day of People with Disability.
