In principle decision to transition from aged and disability services

Southern Grampians Shire Council has made the in-principle decision at its Council Meeting on Wednesday 10 November 2021 to transition the provision of aged and disability services to a new provider.

Council will work closely with the Commonwealth via an Expression of Interest to find a suitable provider that can deliver these services which include home care, personal care and meals on wheels, to the high standard we expect for our community.

A determination on Councils ongoing role will be made in March next year at the conclusion of the EOI process.

Council will host a number of drop-in information sessions from 18 November 2021 on the Mobile Library across all townships where impacted clients and families are invited to hear more information about the process.
