UK Disability History Month 2023 (UKDHM) runs from 16 November to 16 December 2023. 

UKDHM began in 2016 and it is an annual event focused on the history of disabled people’s fight for equality and human rights. 

This Autumn 2023 UKDHM focusses on the Experience of Disablement amongst children and young people in the past, now and what is needed for the future. UKDHM comes from a Social Model/Human Rights approach, so that all children and young people with long term impairment will not experience the social exclusion of stigma, stereotypes, negative attitudes and socially created barriers in the environment and the way things are organised.
