Disability Engagement Group

Inclusive SA is the state government’s commitment to the South Australian community and provides a framework for government agencies and local councils to improve access and inclusion for people living with disability.

The Department of Human Services (DHS) is leading the implementation of Inclusive SA, and have appointed 12 people with strong knowledge and understanding of disability as the founding members of the new Disability Engagement Group (DEG).

DEG members will serve an initial term of 1 to 2 years, meeting quarterly to provide advice to government on future directions of the State Disability Inclusion Plan, Inclusive SA and the trends in the disability sector and emerging issues.

The DEG members develop advice to support access and inclusion for people living with disabilities across the whole of government and in the community. Their valued contributions are informed through a mix of skills, experience and a broad range of human diversity:

  • lived experience of disability
  • experience of being a carer, parent or a family member of a person with disability
  • have an interest in disability policy matters and current trends.

DEG members

We are pleased to introduce our new DEG members, who met for the first time on 4 March 2022. The newly appointed panel provide a voice for a broad range of diverse peoples including:

  • people of a variety of ages and genders
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • those from diverse cultural backgrounds
  • those living in different South Australian geographical locations (metropolitan and regional)
  • those with diverse experiences of disability.
