Stonnington Disability and Access Committee
The Stonnington Disability and Access Committee (SDAC) provides advice and expertise on how Council can improve access and inclusion in Stonnington. The group also provides feedback on the progress of the City of Stonnington Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2023-26.
The Disability Inclusion Action Plan outlines Council's commitment to supporting people with disability, and their families and carers, to enjoy wellbeing, dignity, and social independence in Stonnington. The plan is being developed and will be released later in the year.
The SDAC has 12 community members who are people with disability, carers, family members or represent a local disability agency. The SDAC meetings are chaired by a Councillor.
What topics does the SDAC discuss?
The SDAC discusses many issues and topics in meetings. Discussion can include:
- raising awareness of systemic issues experienced by people with disability in the community
- providing feedback on Council's projects, services and policies
- supporting the planning of local community events or forums
- how Council can better engage with the disability community.
How often does the SDAC meet?
