What Is International Wheelchair Day
Since it was first launched in 2008, celebrations have taken place around the world in places such as: Australia, Nepal, Senegal, South Africa, Bangladesh, Pakistan, United Kingdom and United States of America.
It has grown year over year and I’m sure everyone in the wheelchair community, myself included, look forward to 2023 being bigger and better than ever.
How are you celebrating in 2023?
Everyone within the wheelchair community should organize your own personal celebration or even try to involve your school, college, place or work, charitable organization or community in celebrating the impact a wheelchair has on people’s lives throughout the World.

The Aims of International Wheelchair Day
- To enable wheelchair users to celebrate the positive impact a wheelchair has in their lives.
- To celebrate the great work of the millions of people who provide wheelchairs, who provide support and care for wheelchair users and who make the World a better and more accessible place for people with mobility issues something of which I take pride in being about to have a part in doing in my community.
- To acknowledge and react constructively to the fact there are millions of people in the World who need a wheelchair, but sadly, are unable to acquire one.
