International Wheelchair Day

International Wheelchair Day

International Wheelchair Day, on March 1st, is an annual event dedicated to shouting about the importance of wheelchairs for people with mobility impairments. It’s a reminder to us all that wheelchairs empower people, enabling them to lead independent and fulfilling lives. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions of wheelchair users and promote inclusivity and accessibility in society.


Wheelchairs are not just mobility aids; they are instruments of independence, allowing access to education, employment, and leisure activities. Acknowledging this day promotes a better understanding of the challenges faced by those with mobility impairments and advocates for more accessible environments and policies. It emphasises the need to break down societal barriers and create a more inclusive society, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their physical abilities, can get involved, feel seen and contribute to their communities.
