Disability means opportunity

Disability means opportunity in the Northern Grampians Shire. We have traditionally offered many options for employment, education and care for people with a disability. Our renowned Skene Street School in Stawell provides quality educational opportunities for children with a learning disability or physical impairment.

Pinnacle Services, also in Stawell, offers vocational, social and living skills, training, employment programs, community access programs and prevocational skills training. It provides employment personnel to various local businesses. Murdoch Community Services in St Arnaud provides disability employment support, residential and respite services, accommodation services, independent community accommodation and living skills and high dependency specialist programs.

Community Access Advisory Group

Northern Grampians Shire Council facilitates a Community Access Advisory Group (CAAG) that monitors and improves accessibility for all across the Shire. There are currently positions on the committee for new members. We would love to receive interest from people in  communities such as St Arnaud, Marnoo, Great Western and Halls Gap.  If you would like more information on how to become a member, please download the application form.
