Congratulations to Mija Gwyn, YDAS Manager, and Laura Pettenuzzo, YDAS Communications Assistant, on their appointments to the Victorian Disability Advisory Council.

Mija has also been named as Deputy Chairperson, and will play an important role in supporting the Chairperson and the Council.

The Council provides independent policy and strategy advice to the Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, to increase the inclusion and participation of disabled people in the Victorian community.

The Council also works with government and the community to promote disability inclusion, particularly through supporting the development, implementation and monitoring of Inclusive Victoria the State Disability Plan.

YACVic applauds the Office for Disability for ensuring that disabled young people are represented, alongside a range of diverse experiences, in the new appointments to Victorian Disability Advocacy Council.
