National Week of Deaf People 2021

The National Week of Deaf People (NWDP) is a week-long celebration of Deaf people and the Australian Deaf Community.

This week commemorates the establishment of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) founded in September 1951. Celebrating together the International Day of Sign Languages (IDSL) and the International Week of Deaf People (IWDP), this week brings an opportunity for organisations involved with or wishing to be involved with the Deaf Community to build and strengthen relationships with Deaf people and be recognised as an ally to the Deaf Community.
