The Disability Advisory Committee provides advice to Council on access and inclusion.

This helps Council to design and deliver services and infrastructure in a way that supports our objective of an active, engaged and involved community.

The Committee includes people living with a disability, representatives from local disability services, unpaid carers of a person with a disability, Council staff and Councillors.

Meetings are held every second month.
