International Day of Disabled People (IDDP) Dec 3rd 2019


A collaborative event between Hub Cymru Africa, Disability in Wales and Africa and Disability Wales, to celebrate the UN International Day of Disabled People (IDDP), at the Catrin Finch Centre in Wrexham, North Wales

The IDDP is about Reflection, Celebration, Learning, Optimism and Action 

The theme for this year is ‘THE FUTURE IS ACCESSIBLE’ - envisaging a future where all people can access buildings, services and communications and are not disabled by society’s customs.  

Working towards an accessible future is everyone’s responsibility -creating a future in which people are not excluded because of their impairments; emphasising barriers and working to overcome them. 

Objectives of this event:

  • To amplify the voices of Welsh and African disabled people and their organisations (DPOs).
  • To share knowledge and understanding of disability and its significance for social change
  • To develop and forge links between the Wales Africa sector, Disabled Peoples’ Organisations and disability inclusive development.
  • To share the experiences of the Wales Africa Links,
  • To promote the role of disabled people as equal partners amongst those Links
  • To improve collaboration between disabled people and their supporters across Wales and Africa
