The NSW Disability Council is an independent advisory body set up to help shape more inclusive and accessible communities. 

The 12-person council was established under the Disability Inclusion Act 2014 and performs several key functions, including:

  • Monitoring the implementation of government policy
  • Advising the Minister on emerging issues relating to people with disability
  • Promoting Disability Inclusion Action Plans
  • Consulting with people with disability and relevant councils and bodies and
  • Conducting research about matters relating to people with disability.

 
Families, Communities and Disability Services Minister Alister Henskens said the council played a key part in advising the NSW Government on issues that affect people with disability.
 
“We’re working hard to create a more inclusive and accessible NSW and the Disability Council plays an important role in helping our Government do that by representing the views and opinions of people with disability across the state,” Mr Henskens said.
 
Applications close on Sunday, 19 September 2021. Visit I work for NSW for more information.
