The Disability Council is the official adviser to the NSW Government on issues affecting people with disability, their families and carers.

Applications are currently invited for membership of the Disability Council NSW. The NSW Minister for Disability Services, the Hon. Ray Williams MP, will make recommendations on the appointment of up to six members, including a Chair, to the Governor, General David Hurley. Membership terms are for up to four years duration, with the Chair appointed to the position from the membership for one year.

Role of members

The Council meets approximately six times per year in Sydney for full-day meetings. Members may also be expected to attend other meetings, which may be conducted by teleconference and/or videoconference. Members are also expected to contribute to the aims of the Disability Council between meetings – for example, by sitting on a working group.

Members receive sitting fees and out of pocket expenses for approved participation in meetings and events in accordance with the remuneration guidelines of NSW Premier and Cabinet for NSW Board and Committee members.

The Disability Council NSW is supported by a Secretariat within the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.
