Disability engagement and consultation
Disability SA provides ways to connect:
- people living with disability
- their carers and families
- the broader community
- the non-government sector
and inform government policy and program development, and service delivery.
Our main channel for consultation is through our Disability Engagement Group, which we use to obtain advice about disability issues.
The group is a confidential contact list of people who have chosen to be available to provide independent advice on issues that are important to people with disability in South Australia.
Consultations take place as needed, on a variety of topics and issues. You may join the group and choose areas that most interest you.
Members participate because of their interest and experience in areas related to disability. The people in the group include people with disability, but some family members and carers, and practitioners also are members.
The Department of Human Services (DHS), through Disability SA, manages the group.
