Knox Disability Advisory Committee

Members of the Knox Disability Advisory Committee (KDAC)

The Knox Disability Advisory Committee (KDAC) was established in 1999 to provide Council with advice on issues that impact on the lives of people who experience disability including mental illness and to promote a greater awareness and understanding in the local community of social inclusion in Knox.

The objectives of the Committee are:

  • To advise Council of strategic issues regarding Knox residents with disabilities, their families and carers;
  • To assist Council in the development of policy and action planning about issues of access and inclusion;
  • To work with Council officers to ensure that all of Council’s policies, programs and protocols reflect the needs and rights of residents with disabilities, their families and carers;
  • To provide a central point for Council and the Knox community for the identification of issues relevant to people with disabilities, their families and carers; and
  • To promote disability awareness within Council and the wider Knox community.

Membership of the Committee is made up of Knox Councillors, community representatives and Council staff. All community representatives must live, work or recreate in the City of Knox.

Meetings are held bi-monthly, on Tuesday evening from 6pm - 8:30pm at Knox Civic Centre, 511 Burwood Highway, Wantirna South.
