Use the register

Using the register

Organisations such as:

  • state and local government departments
  • non-government organisations
  • statutory authorities

can ask to use the register. Private businesses may use the register in some cases.

Before making contact with Disability SA, organisations that want to undertake consultation using the register should try to identify:

  • a clear purpose for their consultation/engagement
  • timelines (start, duration, completion, and travel time that may be needed)
  • the type of engagement activity
  • member group(s) to be targeted.

This information will be used to help determine the appropriateness of using the register. 

Disability SA does not evaluate the level or type of expertise offered by the members, but is able to identify members by:

  • age
  • gender
  • geographical region
  • area of declared interest.

This identification will help identify appropriate participants for the consultation.

Disability SA keeps personal information strictly confidential, and operates as an intermediary between the requesting organisation seeking to consult and register members.

Cost of using the register

Using the register is free. However, all and any costs incurred as part of the consultations or engagements are the responsibility of the requesting organisation. These costs may include:

  • administration costs
  • venue hire, sound and video equipment hire, and catering
  • use of interpreters
  • transport assistance
  • insurance cover.
