Gannawarra Shire Council is renowned in the Mallee region as a leader in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) sector, and is the only rural Victorian council to be an approved NDIS provider. Since its implementation in 2019, council’s NDIS support has grown to assist 124 participants living in the Gannawarra region, creating 51 new jobs in a small rural municipality of 10,549 residents.

Council’s NDIS support also complements key programs such as its Social Meals and the Gannawarra Non-Emergency Transport Service in creating and maintaining important connections to the community.
