Satisfaction survey underway

Households are encouraged to participate in the 2021 Community Satisfaction Survey to provide feedback on the service-delivery performance of Council. The annual state-wide telephone survey is carried out by independent market research agency National Field Surveys, across a random representative sample of at least 400 residents. If you receive a call over the next few weeks, please take the time to provide your feedback. It will be used to help identify areas for improvement in the programs and services we deliver. Please be assured individual details and responses remain confidential. For more information visit our website or contact Customer Service on 5471 1700.

Share your NDIS experience

Council is carrying out a feasibility study into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) within our shire. We want to understand and receive feedback from people living with a disability, and their carers, about how they have found the NDIS, the availability of services and information. The study will inform Council’s decision regarding the potential to provide NDIS services in future. Join the conversation at one of our community forums.
