The Yarra Ranges has a population of just over 148,000 people. There are a large number of people living in the Yarra Ranges who have a disability. In fact it is estimated that 18.5% of the population of the Yarra ranges have a disability of some kind. This is over 26,000 people. Disability does not just impact on the individual it also impacts on their familes and friends. What this means is that the impact of disability goes far beyond just those 26,000 people.
We want to hear your life experiences about living with a disability in Yarra Ranges.

A series of activities are being held in Coldstream to help the community to develop a vision statement. A couple of meetings of representatives from community groups and businesses and Council were held in July and October. An outdoor cinema night is being held on Friday 8th November. Another meeting is scheduled to be held in December, and further activities will be held in early 2014. The ideas, thoughts, opinions and suggestions provided by community members throughout this process will be collected and shaped into a draft community vision statement. Comments on the draft will then be sought and a final vision statement produced. Then, the community will determine whether or not to proceed with the next step towards developing a community plan.
This webpage will be used to store imprtant information, pictures, videos etc, and will also be a place for you to have your say. We know it's hard for busy families to attend meetings, so this is another way for you to get involved.
Have your say by joining the discussion forum. If you have a bit more time, read about the ideas gathered so far and also have a look at what other communities are doing in Yarra Ranges and elswhere in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

Yarra Ranges Council is interested in hearing from our older residents on how they prefer to get information. What is important to you and what do you need to know? Information is available a number of different ways, meetings, newsletters, computers, but how do our older residents prefer to access information?
This online forum will help Council understand these important issues for future planning, service delivery and in delivering on our Positive Ageing Strategy.
