Nominate a Don't DIS my ABILITY ambassador for 2014


International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) is celebrated annually in NSW with the
Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign. The campaign celebrates the diversity and ability of people with a disability. It is about promoting positive perceptions and building an environment that encourages active participation in careers, leisure pursuits as well as social activities.
Don't DIS my ABILITY has opened nominations for its 2014 ambassador program. We are seeking nominations for ambassadors from a range of backgrounds, ages and disabilities. Ambassadors support and strengthen the delivery of Don't DIS my ABILITY by serving as the voice of the campaign to the community.  
Experience in this environment is not essential as ambassadors will be mentored by campaign staff to communicate key messages, share personal stories and, ultimately raise awareness of the abilities and achievements of people with disability 
Nominations are open from 9.00am Monday 23 June until midnight Sunday 20 July 2014.
A number of people with Down syndrome have served as ambassadors in the past - read about in the archives, here.
