Would you like to make a difference in the community and ensure that the needs and concerns of people with disabilities, their families, and carers are addressed effectively? If the answer is yes, the City of Casey invites you to express your interest in joining its Disability Access and Inclusion Advisory Group.  
The Disability Access and Inclusion Advisory Group will be a voice for people with disability, their families and carers and will provide a platform for meaningful collaboration, enabling advisory group members to actively contribute to shaping policies, programs, and services that directly impact the lives of those with disabilities. 
City of Casey Chair of Administrators, Noelene Duff PSM, said the advisory group would work closely with the Council to champion accessibility, inclusion, and positive change.  
“Council is excited to establish the Disability Access and Inclusion Advisory Group, a platform that will empower individuals to advocate for accessibility and inclusion in the community,” Ms Duff said.  
“The advisory group will serve as the Council's primary source of advice on matters related to disability access and inclusion, offering recommendations that will influence policies, programs and services. 
“Furthermore, the group will actively contribute to the development and review of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan, a comprehensive approach aimed at enhancing access and inclusion for individuals with disabilities within the City of Casey.” 
Individuals interested in making a positive impact on their community and advocating for greater accessibility and inclusion are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for consideration. The EOI application period closes on 29 September. 
Members of the advisory group will have the opportunity to gain valuable skills, network with fellow community leaders, and contribute to lasting change. Council support will be provided to ensure that every committee member can fully participate, including the provision of necessary accommodations for individuals with disabilities. 
Eligibility for the advisory group extends to residents of the City of Casey who are 18 years or older and have a passion for their community. Those with lived experience of disability, individuals who provide services for people with disabilities, and caregivers are strongly encouraged to apply.
