UK Disability History Month runs from 22nd November to 22nd December each year. 1st December is World HIV/Aids Day, 3rd December is International Day of Disabled People, 10th December is Human Rights Day.

Unite National Disabled Members Committee are supporting this year’s UK Disability History month with the theme ‘War and impairment – the social consequence of disablement’, they stated “This year we wanted to feed in to the centenary of World War, in full recognition of Unite’s work with the Stop the War Coalition and explore the disabling effects of conflicts and how society has responded over history."
