In Moorabool, 1 in 5 people live with a disability. That is 1300 people living in our community. Not all disabilities are visible, and not all are permanent. Council is committed to providing an accessible and inclusive community where people of all ages and abilities are not isolated or excluded from being able to reach their full potential. Council aims to respond and provide for infrastructure, services and facilities for people with disabilities or mobility issues in a co-ordinated and planned way. 

Moorabool Council has an Age Well, Live Well and Access and Inclusion Plan which identifies the committment to ensuring an environment that is accessible and inclusive.
