Partner Advisory Group
As well as having a multi-disciplinary research team, we have an Advisory Group who shape the development of our research outputs. Members are from government and non-government organisations, statutory bodies, peak bodies and consumer representative organisations. They have detailed knowledge of the disability and health sectors and strong 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.
