The Advisory Committee will be comprised of a diverse group of people with disability who have experience and expertise across a range of different areas - with and without connection to sport and recreation.

Advisory Committee members will meet (virtually and/or in person), up to 6 times a year and will be called upon, when required, to provide expert advice or consult on various DSR projects, programs, initiatives, content, design and accessibility. Non-Victorian residents will participate in an online/virtual basis only.
