Each year a group of individuals and organisations from across the city, supported by York Human Rights City Network , come together and volunteer their time to help organise York Disability Week. The week-long programme of activities celebrates United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities here in York.

The UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities is held on 3 December each year, within Disability History Month. It promotes the human rights and well-being of people who identify as disabled or as having a disability in all spheres of society and increases awareness of their situation in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.

Our annual programme of activities usually includes talks, workshops, musical events, creativity, advice sessions, exhibitions and much more. We aim for something for all ages, organised by our ever growing network of community groups and organisations (see the Links tab).

Please get involved by coming along to the events – and think about volunteering or joining our network!
