We hope you managed to attend and enjoy some of our 2022 events (programme still available to look at - see tabs above). For details of any events that were recorded to 'watch again' please check at the bottom of the 'Individual Events List' tab. Email us with any questions. And do consider volunteering with us, or running an event, for York Disability Week 2023.

Our 2022 programme was also available in large font or braille.


Each year a group of individuals and organisations from across the city, supported by York Human Rights City Network , come together and volunteer their time to help organise York Disability Week. The week-long programme of activities celebrates United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities here in York.

The UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities is held on 3rd December each year, within Disability History Month. It promotes the human rights and well-being of people who identify as disabled or as having an impairment in all spheres of society and increases awareness of their situation in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.

Our annual programme usually includes talks, workshops, musical events, creativity, advice sessions, exhibitions and much more. We aim for something for all ages, organised by our network of community groups and organisations (see the Links tab).

Please get involved by coming along to the events - and think about volunteering or joining our network!

Email us on disability@yorkhumanrights.org to join our mailing list or to join our planning/organising group.

The Events Elsewhere page lists related happenings in other towns or cities.

We also have a Resources page of useful documents and videos, including on running online events.

And we have an Archive page with recordings or materials from past events.
