Maroondah Disability Advisory Committee

The Maroondah Disability Advisory Committee was formed in 2010 to provide a link between Council and people with a disability. Through the provision of strategic advice and advocacy the Committee helps Council to promote social inclusion and participation of people with a disability in the community.

The objectives of the committee are to:

  • provide advice to the Council on policy, programs, service development, research initiatives and planning issues in relation to people with disabilities at a strategic and operational level
  • provide advice and guidance in relation to strategies for effective consultation and collaboration in Council activities with a diverse range of stakeholders reflective of the Maroondah community
  • provide advice to Council in the development and review of the Disability Policy and Action Plan
  • promote the positive image of people with a disability within the municipality of Maroondah.


The MDAC consists of a maximum of 14 members and can include the following:

  • people with a disability (maximum of 6 positions)
  • carers of people with a disability, including one who is the carer of a child (2 positions)
  • service provider representatives (minimum 3 positions)
  • Council Officer (minimum of one position, additional Officers may attend as required)
