The MAC members are passionate about advocacy, making things better for people with disability and providing advice around all things sector and NDIS related.

The MAC meet quarterly and provide the following contributions in a range of areas:

  • Identify modifications and/or improvements to better align policies and processes with the expectations of people living with disability, or carers of those with a disability.
  • Provide feedback to Montrose regarding the improvement and design of services and projects that relate to clients.
  • Help inform the advocacy work that our CEO Kerrie Mahon performs as part of various committees and Ability First Australia. This means that the MAC has an influencing voice when major changes are happening within the NDIA and disability sector.
