Disability Action Week

@JCU Disability Action Week


Disability Action Week is held annually in September with the aim of empowering people with disability, raising awareness of disability issues, and improving access and inclusion throughout the wider community.

The theme this year is ‘Inclusion: It’s a game changer’

With 1 in 5 Queenslanders having a disability, and disability touching the lives of most Queenslanders in some way, it is an important week to celebrate. As part of Disability Action Week, the JCU Inclusive Practice Awards are being held in Townsville and Cairns on the 15th September. 

These awards recognise the efforts made by staff to be flexible, consultative, proactive, and/or innovative in minimising the challenges for students studying with a temporary or permanent disability, injury, illness or health condition.
