Disability Week Celebrations
Disability Action Week (DAW) is a chance to empower people with disability, raise awareness of disability issues and improve inclusion in our community.
With 1 in 5 Queenslanders having a disability, and disability touching the lives of most Queenslanders in some way, the week is an important celebration.
To celebrate DAW 2017 (11 - 17 September) council is supporting a number of events across the Moreton Bay Region via its Council Grants Program - Disability Action Week Fund.
