Disability Advisory Committee


Applications are now open for the new Northern Territory Disability Advisory Committee.

The Disability Advisory Committee will provide an opportunity for Territorians with disability to advise the Minister for Disabilities on issues impacting their lives and their interactions with government services.

Committee membership will be reflective of the diversity of Territorians with a disability, including: Aboriginal people, young people, people with an intellectual disability and people with physical disability, carers of people with disability and remote residents.

Who is eligible to apply for the Disability Advisory Committee?

In order to apply to be a DAC member you must:

  • live, work, study or receive services in the Northern Territory;

  • have a disability; or
  • be an unpaid carer or a family member of a person with a disability, have experience, knowledge and understanding of disability issues; and
  • demonstrate ability to work effectively as a member of the committee.

We have designed the application process to be as flexible as possible.
