Disability Advisory Committee

Disability Advisory Committee


The Committee provides advice on things that matter to people with a disability in the East Gippsland Shire. It seeks to maximise the contribution being made by East Gippsland Shire Council and its partners by working with a common agenda to create a more inclusive and accessible region.


The Committee is made up of people with a disability, people who are family members or carers of a person with a disability, and service providers. It also includes Councillors and council staff.


The members draw on their knowledge and experience to advise and help council consult and engage with the community on its plans, strategies and investments relating to improving access and inclusion.


The Committee is voluntary and meets bimonthly. Appointment is for a two-year period.


Please refer to the Disability Advisory Committee Terms of Reference for a detailed overview of its scope and activities.
