Participant Advisory Groups making improvements

The Disability Trust is building on its mission to create a more inclusive world and receiving significant feedback from its recently established Participant Advisory Groups.

These groups are a chance for people who use our services to come along and share their thoughts and ideas about how we operate.

We are interested in hearing about what is working well, and any issues or areas where The Disability Trust could do better. 

And we are also keen to know any suggestions for new programs or services.

We have held a number of meetings with the groups already, with more planned in different regions.

In recent weeks, The Disability Trust Chief Executive Officer Carol Berry and Chief Practitioner Tarryn Bracken have heard from participants in the Illawarra, Hunter and Bega Valley areas.

People also shared their ideas to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Disability Trust, and some people have volunteered to organise future Participant Advisory Groups.

If you would like to attend a Participant Advisory Group near you, please contact Tara Cambourne on 1300 347 224 or email her, or let a staff member know you are interested.
