Ballarat Regional Network

Living regionally, outside of Greater Melbourne, can affect access to services, and can be socially isolating. We have a vision for connecting and supporting people that live in regional Victoria, and Tasmania.

The Ballarat regional network was launched in early 2015, after surveying people living with SCI in the Victorian Grampians region for their interest and preferences the previous year. The group meets monthly and engages in different activities and events, setting their own agenda and calendar of events as they go along.

Current group members come from Ballarat, Daylesford, Kyneton, Drummond, Bacchus Marsh, Melton and Gordon among others. The group is open and always looking to welcome new members; be they regular or casual drop-ins. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to join the group, attend a meeting or find out more.
