Expressions of Interest open for our new Kurrajong Client Carer Reference Group

We are seeking Expressions of Interest from the Kurrajong community for membership of the Kurrajong Client Carer Reference Group.

The Kurrajong Board wish to increase engagement with clients and carers and are therefore seeking interest from the Kurrajong community for membership of the Kurrajong Client Carer Reference Group (CCRG). The Kurrajong Board strongly feels the need to gain client /carer feedback to assist it in its endeavours to support people with disability to live the lives of their own choice in open, accessible and inclusive communities.

The CCRG will be a formal advisory body providing feedback and suggestions to the Kurrajong Board on ways in which Kurrajong can be a more inclusive community organisation for people with disabilities and also advise on ways that Kurrajong can continue to improve service delivery to its clients. Members of the CCRG will draw on their own experience and their broader engagement with people with disability to provide that advice.  The CCRG will bring the voices and perspectives of stakeholders to the Kurrajong Board to ensure Kurrajong provides services or plans services that respond to the differing needs of people and communities in our service operating areas.

Members of the CCRG will be clients, parents or carers of people with disabilities or people with lived experience of disability care and have a good knowledge of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Members will be appointed by the Kurrajong Board and membership will comprise up to seven (7) members consisting of one (1) Director of Kurrajong and six (6) people representative of the geographic footprint in which Kurrajong operates below:

  • 1 - Narrandera/ Leeton / Griffith
  • 1- West Wyalong/Temora
  • 1- Tumut/ Cootamundra
  • 1- Deniliquin
  • 2 – Wagga Wagga

Meetings will be held 4 times per year and have secretarial support from Kurrajong.
