Partner Advisory Group


As well as having a cross-disciplinary research team, we have an Advisory Group who shape the development of the Centre. Members are from government and non-government organisations, statutory bodies, peak bodies and consumer representative organisations. They were selected for their detailed knowledge of the disability and health sectors and their relationships with critical decision-makers, including senior bureaucrats and politicians. Members facilitate a two-way flow of information between their constituencies and the CRE-DH. The Advisory Group is chaired by Graeme Innes AM, Australia’s former Disability Discrimination Commissioner and Chair of the Attitude Foundation, which addresses disability-related discrimination. Graeme Innes was involved in drafting the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Members include: France Farrant, People With Disabilities Australia Justine Borland, Australian Bureau of Statistics Gordon Duff, National Disability Services Angela Healy, Office for Disability Victoria Keran Howe, Women with Disabilities Victoria Kellie Horton, Victorian Health Promotion Foundation Graeme Innes AM (Chair) Mark Cooper-Stanbury, Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Sharon Stuart, Department of Social Security Professor Andrew Wilson, University of Sydney
