Support International Day of People with Disability
3 min read
Endeavour Foundation supports International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). Celebrated on the 3rd of December, it’s a day to remind us of acceptance. Above all, the importance of bringing down the barriers that often stop people with a disability from being fully included in everyday community life.
We all want to be accepted, to belong and to know we are valued. However, people with a disability are often restricted. Limited from accessing basic services, activities, or contributing to the community.
Did you know that more than two million Australians live with a disability? That’s one in every five. And any one of us can experience serious disability. A car accident or work injury could change any of our lives in an instant.
About Endeavour Foundation
Endeavour Foundation provides real opportunities for people with a disability. Above all, supporting over 2,400 people every year to to help them live fulfilling lives at home, at work, and in the community. One of the ways they achieve this is through their At Home With Choices Program. Launched in 2011, the program provides modern, accessible housing for people with a disability, enabling them to live as part of their community and gain more independence. To date, they have built accommodation for 66 residents in 15 locations. Most recently opened was Norman Gardens in Rockhampton – providing three new contemporary share houses for people with a disability.
Your support can help people with an intellectual disability have a place to call home. Perhaps one where they have a chance to be more independent and exercise more control over their lives.
