Disability Reference Committee

Our Disability Reference Committee (DRC) advises on issues around access and inclusion for people with a disability. The committee is an important link between Council, people with a disability and the wider community.

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.

Can I become a DRC member?

You can become a DRC member if you live, work or study in the City of Glen Eira and:

  • have a lived experience of disability
  • are a family member or carer for a person with a disability
  • are a disability service provider
  • are a community member with interest, enthusiasm and commitment to disability issues.

We review our membership every two years.
