Greater Shepparton City Council is calling for nominations from local residents for the Greater Shepparton Disability Advisory Committee.

The committee represents people from a broad range of backgrounds and provides advice and assistance for a range of Council activities, including ways to promote Access and Inclusion in Greater Shepparton.

The committee consists of people with disabilities, industry service providers and a nominated Councillor.  Council staff members provide administration support for the committee.

“Committee members will be elected for a nine month term, with the committee meetings occurring monthly (excluding January).

“The committee advises Council on issues people with a disability and their carers face in the community. Council and the Disability Advisory Committee are committed to providing an accessible and inclusive community for all.”
