The role of the Council will be to make sure the disability data asset is used correctly. It will also make sure the data asset is only used for the things that governments and the disability community have agreed to. The Council will provide recommendations on the strategic direction of the disability data asset to the Disability Reform Ministerial Council.
The Council will give disability ministers recommendations on:
|how findings could be used to improve outcomes for people with disability|
|new areas for national research|
|updates to the disability data asset, such as data improvement.|
The Council will have 2 co-chairs chosen from the 12 Council members. One co-chair will be from government and one will be a disability community member. Council members will include:
- people with lived experience of disability- including carers and family members
- people with specialist knowledge and experience in disability policy, data and management
- people from a range of cultures, backgrounds, genders and locations.
