East Gippsland Shire covers over 21,000 square kilometres, stretching from west of Bairnsdale to the NSW border. It is important for families to know that the services they require are available, wherever they are in East Gippsland.
Council provides a number of services which support families and our youngest residents - the children of East Gippsland. As well as the immunisation services offered directly by Council, we support, work in partnership with, and can provide information on a number of other local family and child services.
East Gippsland Shire Council undertakes strategic planning and advocacy and works to increase the level of co-operation and collaboration in the governance and delivery of services, activities and infrastructure for families and children.
A free community session about the importance of infant mental health will be facilitated by Dr Julie Stone. Please click on the link below for more information.
