Whitehorse City Council is committed to promoting the rights of people with disability and reducing the barriers experienced by people with disability in the community.
The Whitehorse Community Vision states that 'Whitehorse is a resilient community where everyone belongs'.
The Whitehorse City Council Disability Advisory Committee (WDAC) is a Council appointed volunteer committee. The WDAC provides strategic input into the development and implementation of the Whitehorse Disability Action Plan and issues impacting the lives of people with disability. The WDAC therefore helps to guide Council's approach and commitment to people with disability in the community.
Through an expression of interest process the Whitehorse Disability Advisory Committee is appointed for a four year term. Members of the Whitehorse Disability Advisory Committee include people with lived experience of disability, family members and representatives from local disability and health service providers. An elected Councillor chairs the Whitehorse Disability Advisory Committee and the Committee is supported by Council’s Community Engagement and Development Department.
The current term of the Whitehorse Disability Advisory Committee will conclude in 2025.
