Wellington Shire Council is calling for people who may be interested in joining its Wellington Disability Advisory Committee (WDAC).
The Committee provides advice to Council on accessibility and inclusion matters that concern communities across Wellington Shire, with the aim of building a prosperous future for people living with a disability.
Successful applicants will be required to meet on a quartley basis, participate in project steering groups and provide advice to Council on current and emerging issues relating to disability, and to encourage change.
A key objective for the new committee will be to have input into Council’s Disability Action Plan.
Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye said that the committee plays an important role in the social, educational, and cultural life of our community.
“We are looking for committee members from a broad range of backgrounds, with an interest or involvement in disability. We have a vision of a vibrant, inclusive community where people feel welcomed and experience belonging no matter their ability” Cr Bye said.
Council encourages applications from passionate people who can show a commitment to community connectedness and inclusion, as well as advocate for improved services, programs and infrastructure for people living with a disability.
Applicants are required to view the Terms of Reference and FAQs listed on the Wellington Shire Council website.
Apply to become a member of the Wellington Disability Advisory Committee at www.wellington.vic.gov.au/disability before 15 January 2023.
