*People with a Disability
More than 1.17 million people in NSW have a disability. That’s around one in five.
Chances are that you know someone with a disability.
Most people with a disability lead everyday lives. They go to school, work, get married and participate in social and community activities.
Sometimes, people with a disability are prevented from participating in community activities because their needs are not taken into account, or because of negative attitudes of others.
