Community Advisers

Our Community Advisers are groups of people representing our member organisations and others by invitation who have particular interests and expertise in hearing health, disability and wellbeing topics. The groups come together whenever issues arise, and new groups are formed when they are needed. The current advisory groups include:

Families and Children advisory group
Concerned with:

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme hearing stream
    Proper management and protections for device data logging
    Genetic testing
    Newborn screening

(Australian Government) Hearing Services Program advisory group
Concerned with practical ideas for actions to benefit vulnerable groups in the Australian community.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in the criminal justice system advisory group
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are considerably overrepresented in police custody, in both the juvenile and criminal justice systems and are jailed at 13 times the rate of non-Indigenous Australians. Our justice system remains ineffective in addressing these complex needs and vulnerabilities.
