Welcome to Casual Day! Celebrating 30 years of Fundraising & Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities.

Our Mission

An all-inclusive and equitable society where the human rights of all are upheld and protected.

Casual Day is the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD)’s flagship awareness and fundraising project. Casual Day is a widely celebrated national campaign that occurs annually in South Africa, this year on Friday, 06 September 2024. The public’s contribution of R20.00 for a Casual Day sticker entitles them to express their individual interpretation of the yearly theme through their outfits, showing their support for the full inclusion and equity of persons with disabilities.

Casual Day is now the most prominent and successful social advocacy campaign in South African history, having raised over R455 483 million+ since 1994. We are supported by thousands of members of the public who purchase their stickers from participating retail stores, participating companies, our 600+ beneficiary NPOs and schools that renew their participation every year. The proceeds of the donations are channeled to Persons with Disabilities at schools, homes and workshops represented by the participating beneficiary organisations. The project also supports the disability units of 11 universities, the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the South African National Defence Force (SANDF).

Our Impact over 30 Years

Casual Day provides much-needed funds for the work of hundreds of schools and organisations in the disability sector. These include nine provincial associations of and for persons with disabilities (APDs) and five nationwide programmes and projects that encompass workplace access and entrepreneurship, universal design and access, and gender-based violence awareness and training. Here’s a snapshot of our impact since we started in 1994 at the dawn of South Africa’s democracy.
