The IPC supports International Day of People with Disability
The Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) supports International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD), this year celebrated on 3 December. Its theme ‘See the Ability in Disability’, focuses on breaking down stereotypes and challenging the way people think about disability.
IDPwD is a United Nations observed day and celebrated internationally. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
The IPC proudly supports accessibility and inclusion through its own services such as the website’s ReadSpeaker, which allows you to access IPC website information in audio form. The IPC also supports the exercise of privacy and information access rights of persons with a disability, for example, through:
- a guide for NSW public sector agencies that handle personal information about adults with reduced decision-making abilities
- the IPC’s Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan which outlines how the IPC seeks to improve the way it communicates with, and delivers services to, the diverse communities of NSW.
