What does the DRC do?
The DRC includes people with disabilities, carers, community representatives and disability service providers. They help people with disabilities by:
- representing their interests, including those of carers and family members,
- advising on issues and barriers affecting them and their carers who live, work or study in Glen Eira,
- responding to relevant policies, reports, research and plans,
- monitoring the implementation strategy of Council’s Disability Action Plan 2017–2021 (PDF, 5MB).
The DRC meets every second month at the Glen Eira Town Hall.

- have a lived experience of disability,
- are a family member or carer for a person with a disability,
- are a disability service provider,
