Disability History Month

UK Disability History Month (UKDHM) is an annual event creating a platform to focus on the history of our struggle for equality and human rights.

For some time now a number of disabled led organizations have felt the need to have a specific time in the year when the history of our struggle for equality and human rights can be focused on. Disability History Month runs from 22nd November to 22nd December every year. This covers HIV/AIDS Day (1st December), International Day of People with Disabilities (3rd Dec.), and International Human Rights Day (10th December). It also follows on directly from Anti-Bullying Week (19th to 23rd November) which is important as 2.5 times as much bullying is recorded towards disabled as compared to non-disabled young people.
